Well that was a nice unintended consequence of the CAPS "suckage".

I did not have to remove the links to embed the video.

Devoish, nice video.

 Its truly amazing how 70% of the country wants a single-payer health care plan, but this is not being actively talked about on the congressional floors.  That does not sound like good representation.  I've mailed my local congress-critters here in Alabama (I have Shelby.. bleh).  He gave me a complete line of bull about how providing more health care will result in less people having health care.  Um, sure there.  I'm sick of the nay-sayers running the country and preventing improvements, because they actually don't want improvements (for politcal reasons, or due to industry lobbying).

rof,

Thanks for calling.

In 2004 our private insurer system cost us 700 bil - one trillion dollars as compared to public systems.

And it cost us again in 2005, and 2006, and 2007, and 2008...

And then you get knuckleheads celebrating the idea of a return to charitable hospitals of the 1800's as though Doctors and Nurses should be the ones not getting paid. They still have charity based healthcare in small government Toga. And they still have 45yr life expectancies.

Maybe that would solve Social Security as well... :(

Do you think they'll be able to work around the Blue Dogs and the semi blue dogs like Baucus and Hagan?

And.. even though I'm very interested in this from a social justice perspective, I'm curious how this might tie into any investable thesis.  Maybe medical non durables (gloves, tests, etc.. eg JNJ, MCK) and generics (Ranbaxy, Dr Reddy, Teva)?  Maybe a paired short UNH/long SPX?
