      out of the equation. We don't need them. They are the biggest driver in increased cost and less people covered. What don't you get? Do you work in the insurance industry? That would best explain your inquiry. Thank you.

        What don't you get? LBJ was never going to get Medicare passed without "compromise".

        To suggest that I'm an insurance company shill is HR-able, asshat.

          we all have to have a job and  if I was still a licensed insurance insurance underwriter, I would defend them to the end . Fortunately, I found my conscience and left that criminal enterprise called the insurance business. I inquired if you did and get called an asshat for it. May God bless you. So HR me and reread my comment. This is one of the biggest reasons I left here for a year; your kind of personal attacks that contribute no facts.

            you don't "simply take the ins. companies out"

            no administration in American history has yet been able to do so
