Congress Won't Do Anything

Soooo we are going to shame you. This won't work.


Amid consumer furor over rising health insurance premiums, the Obama administration asked insurers on Thursday to post rate hikes — and the justification for them — on the Internet.

Also on Thursday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., introduced legislation that would give the federal government authority to reject rate increases that insurance companies cannot justify.

The developments come as President Barack Obama intensifies his push for legislation to overhaul the country's health care system, with escalating premiums his central talking point.

Posting rate increases online would "shine a bright light" on how premiums are set, said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Pass the Damn Bill. They won't stop until you make them. If you haven't figured that out by now you are lost. This is like counting to ten to an unruly child, but never reaching ten. Perhaps the next strategy will be calling them cotton-headed niddymuggins? Or perhaps putting them in health care time out in front of the teevee? Or perhaps telling them no more snacks while feeding them Skittles, Snickers Bars and encouraging them to work out less? Or..oh fugg it.
