  •  and we are surprised? the point is that (6+ / 0-)

    insurance companies - are in a business - that business is not health care - but profits.  

    I honestly cannot see how we can change that paradigm - in my mind no different than banks - just clearing houses for our money - and do everything they can to hold on to my money.

    If our congress people think that we need to preserve this business model - then that is what will exist.

    If we truly believe that we are a great nation - and a the greatness of a nation is how they treat - the people in need - then we will extend medicare for all.

    I guess our congress people all have forgotten about what the statute of liberty says :

    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door."  

    "The Constitution does not just protect those whose views we share; it also protects those with whose views we disagree." -- Ted Kennedy
