  •  Impossible. We passed "health care reform". (5+ / 0-)

    Surely health care reform addressed the No. 1 issue of the 40% additional cost imposed on US health care system by insurance companies who provide no health care but add a charge of 40% to all health care services.

    We don't see politicians elected on health reform proposing any additional reforms such as...price controls this problem must be solved.

    We have the double triple spectacle of 30% increase in health insurance costs, combined with the 40% tax by insurance industry on all health care combined with the "reform law" requiring Americans to buy insurance products instead of health care.

    Since the insurance industry has provided the clear evidence that we did not pass health care reform, this should be a key principle and purpose of Democrats running in 2012.

      After "reform," corporate fees on health care are becoming a quasi-tax. Different name, even more victims, plus the force of law to ensure premium collections.

      Sunday mornings are more beautiful without Meet the Press.
