That is just the problem with insurance companies or any other big bidness, they are only worried about there bottom line and how much profit margin they can make. Insurance companies were originally put together to shoulder the brunt of one individual having a loss and put the loss amongst other policy holders so the rates would not go through the roof. Someone got the big Idea to make states require us to have insurance, there still are people that do not carry insurance. So the Insurance companies got the states to mandatory insurance and now they just raise rates because they know people that want to be legal and have insurance are going to carry insurance instead of going to jail or losing your liscense or a big fine. Helmet laws are not the most important item out there, the right to ride would be first, maybe it is because of people not wearing helmets that caused insurance companies not to cover recreational riders!

gdrazek, The Commerce Clause in the Constitution was placed there as a check against State to State tariffs or boycotts on another States products. Please read up on your history. There are numerous letters and journals from the framers of our Constituion available to show what the true intent of what the Commerce Clause pertained to. Just because five black robed hacks on the "supreme" court claim that they have interpeted some vague "penumbra," not backed by any concrete evidence, it doesn't mean that it's constitutionally correct.



As for your worries about private enterprises selling crack to children, please see the Tenth Amendment which guarantees the right of the people of each State to decide if they wish to allow such activity or not. VWW

There is no real need to ban health coverage to those who engage in "risky" activity. Actuaries will quickly assess the risks and adjust the rates accordingly. Those employers who can afford the coverage may continue to offer it. Those who can't won't. And some of those who can, but don't want to, will have an excuse not to. Health coverage, other than workers' compensation, is not a mandated benefit. Those who pay for their own coverage will bear the brunt of escalating costs or do without. It will then be up to you and me to make some difficult choices should the legislators leave the decision making up to those who offer the coverage.

"That is just the problem with insurance companies or any other big bidness, they are only worried about there bottom line and how much profit margin they can make. "



How is that a problem? Why else would a big business exist? Why else would any-sized business entity exist? If it isn't about the profit, it isn't a business--it's a hobby.

"The bipartisan measures are in response to action taken by federal regulators that legalized health-insurance discrimination against riders. " from the article. This was not an action against the insurance providers themselves but rather to counter a loop hole created by federal regulators.

The very fact that federal regulators f#*ked this up so badly in the first place should give pause to anyone who expects them to straighten this mess up now. VWW
