    “So what’s driving this bout of consolidation”? Two things investor greed and Wall Street.

    You’re quite right. My mind said “are” but my fingers typed “aid.” Thank you for pointing that out; we’ve made the correction.

    It works in other countries…it’s called socialized medicine. Let’s get with the program.

    Blue Cross Blue Shield has been sweeping up insurance companies across the nation, making it into the MA Bell of Obamacare.

    The losers in this ‘deal’ are the American people as we are forced to pay higher and higher premiums for miniscule services.

    What Blue Cross Blue Shield is doing is a outright violation of the Anti Sherman Trust Act. Yet the Government (while they don’t have to follow the law in regards to abiding by Obamacare) continues to look the other way.

    Repeal, repeal, repeal – term limits for the career criminals.

    The most concise summary of the Healthcare Insurance industry yet written. More evidence that Obamacare has never been about healthcare, but rather control and dollars.

    In the short term, it may have little effect other than unaffordable premiums and untreated illnesses due to the high deductibles. But, in the long run, the insurance industry will destroy the finest healthcare delivery system the world has ever known.

    Kudos, Greg.

    As a retired educator from the Northeast (Boston) region I enjoy inexpensive health insurance coverage as a Florida resident. I believe I am the beneficiary of insurance company and teacher retirement boards negotiations and compromise to provide me with an affordable insurance plan. It is time for all health care insurance companies to understand the need for national health insurance by negotiating with hospitals, teacher unions, municipal employers and citizens.

    There’s NOTHING affordable about the “affordable” health care act. Its a sham. Conservatives love to talk about big government control of industry but the ones really in control is industry, the very industries lining the pockets of conservatives. Its just more lip service more BS by a congress interested in ANYTHING other than the welfare of the “legal” American people. The American people got screwed with Obamacare.
