Liberals - they rail against monopolies and big businesses that drown out the mom-and-pop shops. But, when dismantling the giant state-controlled health insurance monopolies, liberals want no part of it just because it is not a specific progressive idea. What they don't get is that it is an American, free-enterprise idea. Wasn't it liberals who were decrying the lack of competition from drug companies that was causing the price of medicine to skyrocket for medicare/medicaid , and the general public? Why should health insurance companies be any different? Why shouldn't they compete nation-wide for our money? Think about it.
