  •  I like Al. BUT. Nobody made any provision (12+ / 0-)

    for the millions of us who lost our jobs when our greedy companies decided to outsource to save money.

    People who work for the insurance companies could work for the single-payer system in billing. Or they could "retrain" for all those other jobs the rest of us are competing for. Their industry is a bunch of bloodsuckers anyway, for whom they should be ashamed to work.

    Nobody is guaranteed a profession will stay viable for a lifetime.

    My grandfather was the proverbial buggy-whip maker who had to re-invent himself to support his family.

    Oh, it's hard to do? Tell me about it. Going on five full years of unemployment -- with NO benefits.

    Where are the new jobs? Where are the opportunities for future employment for ALL of us? Why are insurance company employees special?

    A new group of unemployed persons is no reason to further prop up the health insurance industry. I'd rather pay unemployment for them for two years than continue to prop up a bunch of bastards like health insurance companies. They do absolutely nothing to help our society and should be run into the ground immediately.
