Now the Squeeze is on in PA

First New York, now Pennsylvania.

Gov. Ed Rendell has launched an investigation into the state's nine largest health insurance companies to help find out what's behind recent rate hikes for small businesses.

Gee Ed, here's a clue.

Claims . . .

Some insurance companies are using tools, including questionnaires, to find out if small-business employees have pre-existing health conditions.

Then those businesses are charged higher premiums.

Golly, and some (actually all) banks are using things like credit scores before making a loan. Those with scores below the Mendoza line are actually charged higher rates and fees.

I suppose if you can't cut it in the real world you become a politician where intelligence and common sense are not required skill sets.
