How much insurance do you think your companies will sell under single payer?
First they came for the Tea Party people via the IRS. That worked really good, so now they know they can threaten anybody they want, like the Insurance Companies to keep their mouths shut.
Nobody blinks an eye, business as usual. This Country is falling fast.....people do not seem to even notice.
Did someone give a tyranny and forgot to invite me?
And Frank Pallone has the audacity to say that the insurance companies have to learn to compete better in the free market.
You don’t compete with the regulators.
“Nice biz you’ve got here. Be a shame if something bad happened to it.”
This is intolerable.
Any CEO of any major industry should be able to speak about the problems in his industry. How else are we to understand the problems?
Congress should stop this.
Anyone who hasn’t firmly concluded that the executive office has been completely transformed into a racketeering outfit ain’t paying attention.
Fascism, ain’t it grand!
Chicago Style is no style ...hell Capone was a Neapolitan, not Sicilian, and just killed kids and people with no finesse... now the NYC mob did it with class and discrimination .. NOOOO, not that type of discrimination, i.e., racial, that would be Democrap Chicago Style.
Bret Bair at Fox.. Are you listening? 'FOX NEWS 'SPECIAL REPORT' on the Kommie King's SILENCING-WHILE-HIJACKING our private sector is in order!

Can’t the pilot crew of Air Force One take one for the country and end this foray into outright tyranny?
When the government choses not to attempt to protect ALL its citizens it protects none of them.
Ruling through threats, blackmail and obamacide.
It’s da Chicago way!
I’m sorry but I can’t work up too much sympathy for these f*cking asshats. They were right in there helping concoct this piece of sh*t because they thought they were gonna cut a fat hog in the butt. They should have known they would be thrown under the bus when this thing predicably went south.
Well Well Well, sees like the Commies at the White House have been pretty busy..everyone knows that the one running the show at the White House is Valerie Jarrett, she is the real President..Obama is just her tyrant lackey who does her bidding..didnt Jarrett say before the 2012 election that she would “Punish her enemies” after Obama was re-elected..spoken like a true Communist
