    can do plenty of business under a single-payer health care scheme. There are still opportunities.

    Supplemental coverage, for example, which isn't nearly as big-ticket as insuring against all health risks, but can actually be more profitable. Visioncare. Dental. Drugs not covered by the national plan. Disability insurance. Lots of things.... Insurance companies do quite well in Canada -- I know, I used to work for a big one.

    The American companies lobby against universal healthcare because it is much cheaper to buy politicians than to change their way of doing business. But, faced with a fait accompli, they would adapt, and continue to make profits.

    Massacre is not a family value.
