Guess what industry has given Republican presidential candidates 3X as much donations as Democrats?
Answer: The insurance industry.

The five insurance interests whose PACs or employees have raised the most money this year for political causes are New York Life Insurance ($809,350), Aflac Inc. ($535,300), Blue Cross Blue Shield ($493,688), Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America ($438,688) and USAA ($385,295).

3. Yes...occupy them all.
Medical insurance companies, especially, have NO reason to exist.
They do NOTHING to aid in your treatment or health care, rather they impede it at every step using every despicable tactic possible.

4. I guess there are enough of us to go around, but the bankers have us
by the *'s right now and they should be held accountable now.Once they release their funds and get things moving and we make sure to rid DC and state gov. of their lackeys and reinstate accountability and responsibility laws, then insurance will be pulled in line.

Republicans must not be given power to hand to these insurance companies.
Start registering everyone you know.We must push this knowledge and enlighten the voters.
