Buying both houses of Congress in order to kill legislation that would
have kept people from going bankrupt because because they got sick, or
dying because they didn't have three grand a month in disposable
income to pay premiums wasn't cheap for the healthcare racket,
economically or morally. They've got to get those tens of millions of
dollars back and they really have only one mule to beat: their
policyholders. Luckily for the healthcare industry, they have been
granted special exemptions from the anti-trust and price gouging
laws.

Tell that to the anti-Obamacare people and they'll laugh in your face.

Sometimes I even put it in the food.
