20. Correct. The fact that health care came up at this point in time was not a happy coincidence
All the show of the insurance industry 'voluntarily' coming to the table this time as if to imply they know they've been bad and need to change their ways was just horse hockey. Their asses are in sling and more so with every year that passes. This bill is their bailout. The trick has been to hide that from us so we don't realize we should get a lot more concessions in return for giving our citizens over to them. How much would we rise up and demand if we really got it that it is their asses that are being saved, here?
