9. When I worked in the Health Insurance industry

for a couple of the ones mentioned in the article. Our strategy was to put a number out there about 5-6% higher than we really needed/wanted to be at full profitability. Then when the backlash came, we hemmed and hawed and backed down to look like good little corporate citizens while still making exactly what we wanted to make in the first place.

It's all a game to them, my friends. They know the rules and the reactions better than anyone. They play us for fools.

Best thing for us and for the country; Single Payor.
