I still support single payer or public option, but I found this interesting.

5 year total of 23 Health companies CEO salaries totalled 14.9 Billion dollars. 10% of 14.9 billion is 1.4 billion. If basic insurance costs $8,000/year for a family then taking 10% from just these CEO salaries would insure 35,000 Americans a year ...for five years. That is a lot of people that can be helped just by 23 men. Looking at the companies as a whole that profit from health care, we can probably pay for every uninsured person in this country for decades to come.Read More
