Good riddance!

May 14, 2011 by legitgov

Health Insurers Making Record Profits as Many Postpone Care 14 May 2011 The nation's major health insurers are barreling into a third year of record profits, enriched in recent months by a lingering recessionary mind-set among Americans who are postponing or forgoing medical care. The UnitedHealth Group, one of the largest commercial insurers, told analysts that so far this year, insured hospital stays actually decreased in some instances... Yet the companies continue to press for higher premiums, even though their reserve coffers are flush with profits and shareholders have been rewarded with new dividends.

Obama makes push for Alaska offshore drilling

May 14, 2011 by legitgov

Obama makes push for Alaska offshore drilling 14 May 2011 Citing continued unemployment and the rising cost of goods across the U.S., including continued high gasoline prices, President Obama on Saturday declared plans to increase oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and in Alaska. Obama also emphasized safety and streamlining of the lease process, saying that he's "establishing a new team to coordinate work on Alaska drilling permits," in order to expedite the process. [Oh, and offshore drilling by Exxon Mobil and BP, who would then sell the oil to China after getting US taxpayers to subsidize the drilling -- is going to lower gas prices? LOL. Even after Obusha gives the oil companies *everything* they demand, they will keep oil prices sky-high so that the GOP, backed by Karl Rove's AmeriKKKan Crossroads and Koch brother billions, sweeps in 2012. The reason for 'continued unemployment' and the 'rising cost of goods across the U.S.' is Wall Street speculation and outsourcing by Obama's corporate overlords and their enablers, the GOP, who continue to wage war on the middle class and poor in the US. Barack Obama continues to facilitate the largest transfer of wealth in world history to the same corpora-terrorists who use that money to wage war on us. It's another reason to SEIZE DC!
