How much profit does that leave to hire new people, expand your operations etc when your operating costs (overhead + selling, general, and administrative) is somewhere in the 14-18% of sales range? In this case sales =100. That's right... anywhere from a 2%-6% profit margin. Not 20% as you keep beating your chest about. This has nothing to do with liberal vs. conservatives. It is purely dollars and sense. Smaller health insurance companies will find it more than difficult to operate in this environment. The big guys can swing it because they offset their losses in individual premium sales of policies by selling group policies to large companies in which they don't have to provide as much back end service, a cost that smaller companies have to absorb. You don't seem to get that or your vision is blurred by your Barrycoloredkoolaid glassses.
You smell what I am stepping it yet?
He is a mindless Obama groupie. You would have better luck trying to fill up the Grand Canyon with pennies than you will trying to reason with that idiot~
It would indeed be a tragedy if the history of the human race proved to be nothing more than the story of an ape playing with a box of matches on a petrol dump.
