Re: More good news!

About what I figured, you would never understand it, or want to understand. It's not about you, it's about big insurance, big banks. You people on the right who are carrying their water, are not much more than the poor ignorant slobs in the Civil War, that fought and died for the Confederacy, so the big rich plantation owners could keep their wealth and their slave. Your being used.

Re: More good news!

So you are happy to see such disgusting amounts of your money go to those parasites and at the same time, have staff of their organisations deny genuine help to people who paid their subscriptions so to keep massive profits sky rocketing upwards. Is that right?

 

I bet those poor buggers in the ghettos would like a bit of that.

Obamacare puts a 'lid' on what % of your premiums go towards salary and administration (but require everyone to buy insurance, giving the companies more $$$ coming in).

If paycuts happen, who do you think will get the cuts?

Re: More good news!

That might be true, if we got the fraud/abuse out of the Medicare system   The way it is now, instead of fatcat executives extracting $$$ from the system, we have fraud.

Pick your poison.

 

 

The GAO investigation identified several weaknesses with the current process for reviewing Medicare claims. Limitations in the number of medical reviews conducted leave the home health benefit -- within the Medicare program -- vulnerable to improper payments, including payments resulting from fraud and abuse.

In previous studies, the GAO reported in February 2009 that in fiscal year 2007, only 0.5 percent of the more than 8.7 million home health agency (HHA) claims processed were subjected to prepayment review by Medicare's contractors.

Where some of our bailout money went

 

 

CEO Salary

  • On September 1, 2010, Dan Akerson assumed the top position with General Motors and reportedly received $2.53 million in compensation in 2010. According to MLive.com, Akerson received a base salary of $566,667, $194,088 for serving on the company's board of directors and $1.8 million in stock rewards. The "Wall Street Journal" pegged Akerson's compensation package at approximately $9 million per year. Akerson has been credited with helping GM make money and for taking the company public shortly after he assumed his present position as CEO.

 
 
Please keep in mind, I'm not trying to justify the bis insurance executives salaries, so much as pointing out that the raping of the average Joe, comes from all directions, and as far as rapists go, they aren't really much worse than the others.
