The WSJ jerk who was on the panel with Stephie states that Obama is not a socialist because he has turned over healthcare to the insurance companies is nuts. Even Stephie had to mention that it is highly regulated by the government. The insurance companies can only offer plans that meet federal mandates. This is no longer the free market. The insurance companies have just become an administrative instrumentality of the government.

Exactly right. The post-modern communist make tools of free market operators via regulation, influence, soft bribery, etc.

You’re right Cousin Mike, the so-called Free Market insurance is really just bids for administration costs. If these companies were really free they would never willingly choose coverage for abortion or something so easily preventable.

Do they think we don’t see through this?
