What’s So American About Competition?

As someone who has recently worked for two Health Insurance companies, although in the I.T. department, but none-the-less a health insurance company. One was small a worker’s compensation insurance company and treated their employees and clients well, until they were purchased by a large health insurance company. The other is the 2nd largest health insurance company in the country was simply HELL to work for, but I guess I asked too many questions.

After I started to think about health insurance reform I figured that I ask President Obama and my fellow Democrats three simple questions.

1. What’s so American about competition?

2. Why should we prevent health insurance CEO’s from living the American Dream?

3. I now see why the Republicans in congress, FOX News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and the unaware virtually all White non-racially motivated people at the events are protesting. Is Joe Wilson right?

  1. I’ll toss this tidbit about insurance companies into the fray.

    Comparisons with other countries is often done — actually in both the positive and negative sense. However, many times it’s apples and oranges because in some countries, health insurance companies are not-for-profit organizations.

    I’m not saying US insurance companies should or shouldn’t be this way … just bringing forth a point.
