  •  Monopoly!! (1+ / 0-)

    The Health Mafia doesn't want any competition to enter the system because that would actually cause these giant Corps. to God forbid COMPETE! We are always being endlessly lectured out here by the Rt. about the benefits of the marketplace through competition. The truth is competition is for losers not winners. The winners HATE competition, they want protection for their monopoly positions and they pay for by buying whatever amount of political protection is necessary @ the moment. The whole so called Health reform debate lacks context in this regard. The health Mafia would have us believe it already competes and it doesn't. It would also have us all believe that a Gov't option would put it out of business. It might but that's precisely because it couldn't compete. So why should we care if it can't compete? Our ONLY concern should be about putting into place a system that lowers cost and allows EVERYONE access to care. The health Mafias only concern is their massive profits , earned through political manipulation of the marketplace. They are paying politicians of both parties to Protect their market shares and they want everyone to believe that this is somehow a good thing.
