O! The Humanity!

"'s a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. It's smoke, and it's flames now ... and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the mooring-mast. Oh, the humanity and all the passengers screaming around here. I told you, I can't even talk to people whose friends are on there. Ah! It's–it's–it's–it's ... o–ohhh! I–I can't talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest, it's just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage."

    People with pre-existing conditions are now allowed to buy health insurance without penalty, young men with no health problems are seeing a large increase in rates as are the women past child bearing years. Rates have been raised by all companies, btw. The people who will be charged the most are smokers, the government has told the health insurance companies to charge up to half again the normal rates to those who use tobacco.

    The Federal Government has no Constitutional authority to require the Citizens to have Health Insurance. But since the 60's, what's changed in the big freedom killing power-grab by our betters in D.C.?

    1. The Federal Government has no Constitutional authority to require the Citizens to have Health Insurance.

      Five outta nine Supremes seemed to think they DO.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
