AS HEALTH COSTS SOAR, G.O.P. AND INSURERS DIFFER ON CAUSE
4th March 2011, NY Times
MANCHESTER, N.H. – Workers at a circuit-board factory here just saw theirÂ health insurance premiums rise 20 percent. At Buddy Zaremba’s print shop nearby, the increase was 37 percent. And for engineers at the Woodland Design Group, they rose 43 percent.
The new federal health care law may eventually “bend the cost curve” downward, as proponents argue. But for now, at many workplaces here, the rising cost of health care is prompting insurance premiums to skyrocket while coverage is shrinking.
As Congress continues to debate the new health care law, health insurance costs are still rising, particularly for small businesses. Republicans are seizing on the trend as evidence that the new law includes expensive features that are driving up premiums. But the insurance industry says premiums are rising primarily because of the underlying cost of care and a growing demand for it.
Across the country, premiums have more than doubled in the last decade, with smaller companies particularly hard hit in recent years, federal officials say.

THE GREAT AMERICAN ROBBERY
The first Great American Robbery was the Sub-Prime Disaster, where the Power Groups of the U.S. convinced the American Government and the American people to commit the biggest fraud in the history of the world.
The Power Groups made hundreds of billions of dollars from that escapade and now, they are ready to make more. (Their loot is, of course, hidden in giant corporations under fake company names — but always available to the Power Groups and their heirs.)
Their latest incursion into what remains of the vast assets of the American population is called: HEALTH CARE.
Like the Sub-Prime Mortgages, Health Care has all the characteristics needed to rip off a stupid and uneducated public. It is in the Public’s Interest. Everybody needs and wants Health Care, just as everybody needed their own house.
The Poor gain, the Rich lose. Almost all the people who do not have health care are in the lowest economic class. They will not pay a penny for the new health care. (They will also vote for Obama, as a show of thanks.)
Productive workers and small businesses will pay higher taxes and see their health care benefits shrink. But, these people are not important because their votes are fewer than those of the lowest economic class.
The Government is for Health Care Reform. The Government, like the Government that supported the sub-prime mortgages, is for anything that makes their bosses, the Power Groups, happy.
The Public doesn’t understand it. The American Public doesn’t understand anything. The American Public has had its educational system destroyed by the Power Groups so that they would follow their public leaders like sheep.
TheÂ ignorance of the American Public is almost unbelievable. It took almost a half century to finally destroy the American public educational system. Today, the average American knows only what he hears on television.
THE STAGE IS SET
With an ignorant and compliant public, a Government totally controlled by the Power Groups, and a group of Insurance Companies that are eager to share in the winnings, the game is about to begin.
The First Step will be the passage of a sweeping set of laws that are impossible to understand. Each Law will have to be interpreted by a government official who is totally under the control of the Power Groups.
The Second Step will be the imposition of taxes and Fines for all who do not follow the law as the Government Officials deem correct. The Third Step will be the establishment of Agencies which will receive the funds from the taxes and the fines.
These Agencies will be the key to the robbery. They will funnel the money placed in them to the Power Groups who will have erected Health Service Companies which will pay the health Service Providers.
Large parts of their revenues will go to unseen companies who perform special tasks which are necessary for the complexities of Health Care. Since the quantities of money involved are immense, it will be almost impossible to trace the funds. The Robbery will go totally unnoticed.
At the end of two years, the economic underclass, who are mostly minorities, will vote overwhelmingly for a return of the Obama Administration. And, thus, the loop will close!
But the Economic Rip Tide will not stop. Unemployment will grow and prices will surge in terms of U.S.Dollars. The Power Groups will have won again, and the American Public will have lost again, but the Global Market will continue unabated.
We have all heard Actor Obama tell the world how he will keep the insurance companies in check. Evidently, Bloomberg did not get the message!
Sept. 11 (Bloomberg) — “The U.S. health-care overhaul proposed in Congress will do more than impose greater controls on private insurers. It will also swell their profits.
New legislation may generate 10 million more customers for Amerigroup Corp.,UnitedHealth Group Inc. and other companies that administer Medicaid, the government plan that covers the poorest Americans, according to James Carlson, Amerigroup’s chief executive officer. Molina Healthcare Inc.‘s Medicaid enrollment may jump by 43 percent, CEO J. Mario Molina said. WellPoint Inc., the largest U.S. insurer, may also gain.”
These insurance companies donate billions to the coffers of the POLS. They will be in this game until the end and part of their profits will go to their favorite actors.
