I agree with you 100% on this. The insurance program should be run by the government and not by the private insurers. Unfortunately, both parties are beholden to corporate lobbyists which makes breaking out of the pork cycle very difficult if not impossible.If it's so important that everyone pay money in, so somebody else can pay the medical bills, why not just cut the middleman? We are going to end up paying higher taxes anyway, why not just pay the government, and let them pay the medical bills. Since the government demands that we all buy insurance, they had better put a cap on salaries and bonuses for the insurance industry.
