Oh Really??

We can resolve the high cost of health care and the low rate of insurance coverage in one easy step.

We just have to allow interstate commerce.

So THAT'S how it is done.

Under these mandates, certain items have to be in your policy whether you need them or not.

By allowing people to hit the Internet and look at other states' policies, we can reduce our cost by 70 percent.

70% huh?

So, according to this theory, individuals whose coverage is not subject to state mandates can save 70%, right?

If that is so, why then do companies like Coca-Cola, Home Depot and others whose plans are not subject to state mandates pay as much, if not more, than individuals do for similar benefits?

Something is terribly flawed here. I suspect it is a much misinformed journalist who really does not grasp the dynamics of health insurance pricing.
