Dear Max--Your "Health Racketeering" buddies have to go!

Max, I'm really disappointed in you. Actually that is an understatement...

My parents lost their house paying for my mother's medical bills. The last 20 years of her life was just hell. Because she was 55 and she never worked, she couldn't get any help from Social Security and Dad made too much money from construction for her to get SSI or Medicaid. Dad had health insurance through his union, but the beancounters keep finding new ways to deny or delay payment every chance they could. It got to the point that I had to send money home every month to help them and I had to borrow on credit cards to cover their expenses. I even had to bust my IRA to pay for a surgery my mother needed that the beancounters refused to cover even though she was in agonizing pain.

These fucking pimps ruined my life. i gave up having a family, buying a house or car or having a life because I'm indebted to the credit card loansharks. And when I see a certain Senator named Max Baucus whore for these pimps by shutting out advocates for single payer it makes my blood boil. I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GONNA TAKE ANY MORE SHIT FROM DINOS LIKE YOU ANYMORE!

Now the pimps running this racket are diverting whatever money they can from denying claims to buying off the Republicans and DINOs like you to make sure that they keep the racket going.

Senator Baucus, I am serving notice on you that your whoring days are over.

The pimps running the health "insurance" racket are going out the door and we are going to force single payer down your throat whether you and your fellow gutless Evan Bayh DINOS like it or not.

Now Max, you wanna get down on your knees and beg for your pimps like a whore does for theirs?

Well, Max, how about if Bernie Sanders adds a couple amendments to your pseudo-reform that Chucky Schumer is trying to scam us with that would include...

1) Federalizing all insurance regulators. No more state insurance commissioners that can be bought off one by one.
2) Declaring that insurance is a public utility and has to be tightly regulated
3) Requiring ALL insurance companies to be mutualized--they must be owned by the policyholders. NO STOCKHOLDERS MAY HAVE ANY STAKE IN ANY INSURANCE COMPANY!
4) Policyowners will vote for the board of directors of these companies.
5) All companies must accept anyone for health insurance irregardless of their conditions and their premiums will be fixed by Federal regulators.
6) Claims must be paid within 30 days
7) Failure to pay claims timely will result in the company paying an additional 12% penalty to the policyholder.
8) No employee of any health insurance company shall be paid more than 80% of the salary of the President of the United States. No stock options. No profit sharing. No deferred compensation. No other "salary incentive or enhancement". If they cannot make ends meet on $320,000 a year, then they can get off their ass and get another job, a real job instead of being a parasite.

If we cannot have single payer, than those 8 points are change I can believe in.
