Tag: Wrong Then

Our mitten shaped shire will be begging off the teat of that which has more milk than thou hast. Tis true, a benevolent king hath offered a ransom worthy of consideration and disbursement amongst the villagers. ~
True to form, It seems Michigan's governor Rick Snyder is all about cronyism. Up or down. About "partnerships", and complicit deal making with bigger government, and BIGGER business. Big. Big. Big.
The insurance behemoths that will briefly exist under a 'marketplace' of insurers will likely make a lot of folks quite well-to-do. Though we should have little problem with entrepreneurial folks and making a buck, it is worth noting it ain't gonna be Joe six pack, but carefully selected recipients of the public's new expense of an insurance exchange. As this develops, pay careful attention to the 'players', and note that prior to 2010, many of the businesses handling billions in insurance premiums didn't exist.
Same show. Same suckers. New ringmasters.
Step. Right. Up.
And the governor of our state is as-they-say, "all in". He apparently views such matters as one might view a Siamese twin sharing the same heart. So when the poison in the federal government is injected, we all feel the 'euphoria'. From the Detroit News:
The Michigan health insurance exchange required by federal law got a boost from Washington Thursday with a $30.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for planning and implementation.
The state is STILL going to be involved, when all we have to do, is say "Go do it yourself". OR, something a little more terse; "f--- ---".
Michigan last year missed a deadline to try to form its own exchange because Republican legislators saw the move as backing President Barack Obama's 2010 massive health care overhaul.
You think? It was the point of not carrying it out of committee. We don't want it. Its NOT constitutional, no matter what 5 of 9 of the judicial junta at the top says.
