    insurance companies receive, as well as the PROFITS those companies collect each year and wonder how elimination of those would impact our receiving single payer health care.  That money is being paid to them in premiums by employers and individuals.  I keep hearing people say what it would cost in taxes, but in my view it's already being paid in those premiums. Eliminate the PROFIT factor by eliminating insurance companies and redirect that money into the single payer healthcare system.  Yes, it would be taxes, but we're paying it already anyway.  I would prefer my tax dollars go to keeping Americans healthy rather than having it go to insurance industry profits or to pay for unjust wars.  

    It's time to impeach, dammit!
