This kid is da bomb!
I still say my insurance companies are bigger thieves than the government, considering the fire department wouldn't come to my house and see how big the fire is and say "Well, this seems like a pre-existing fire... good luck with that."
Perhaps more competition instead of no competition (ie, a government monopoly) would make insurance companies more responsive to their customers?
I don't think having more insurance companies makes denying someone's claim any less profitable.
A bad reputation is generally a bad way to expand one's customer base, no?
A bad reputation prevented Windows from being the primary OS for computers? Oh wait... unfair business practices took care of that. I guess free markets are all about corruption and greed, not providing a betetr product. Shocking...
To a large extent, Microsoft is a government-granted monopoly. Beyond that, what "unfair practices" are you referring to?
Microsoft has constantly fostered a monopoly on computer software. Acquisition of competitors, claiming proprietary copyright on open source code bundled with original coding, and has generally fought tooth and nail (like any private entity) to be the sole/dominant OS provider. Eliminating competition in markets is not good for anyone but shareholders of the company holding the monopoly.Further, regarding health care:http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSTRE59S3FX20091029Healthcare is not getting cheaper, it is going up as companies try to squeeze us for more before America finally implements a public option.
