You screwed up Minnesota, lets hope this follows you all the way to your failed bid on Wahsington.

Yep T-Paw got his way! I would think reducing medical cost would be to reduce drug cost, try and reduce what the greedy insurance charges. Not reduce the care people must need. But good old T-Paw hasn't done this instead he made it very hard for people to get care at all! He was right in getting help now quite a few outstate clinics and hospitals are paying the price and the state doesn't have to spend a dime. Thanks T-Paw.

Maybe you should pay for it - like the 300+ million Americans do? As much as it may chap you - we can't afford to keep rewarding failure.

Reducing onerous regulation is a start. It is NOT our job to fund health care services for those without.

What defines "greedy"? A 3-4% profit margin? Or thinking you are entitled to something for free at the expense of everyone else? I know the answer - but I just am curious what the talking points are on this one...

a "CEO" has shareholders to answer to - unless its one of your government backed entities - then the sky is the limit!

A company goes broke - that's free market natural selection - other entities come in and pick up the pieces and attempt to succeed where the original failed. Unless your messiah steps in and gives it over to the union financed by taxpayer dollars - then the shareholders get jacked and the inevitable is held off for a year or two - then its back to the public trough to support a failed experiment...

Yep. And yet with failure come a fat bonus and upward mobility.
