I was watching TV, when I saw the following commercials for Progressive Auto Insurance.
Progressive Insurance sells Home, Automative, Motorcycle, Truck, RV, Boat, and even Segway Insurance. And so, I wonder, why not Life and Health Insurance?
The whole policy of Progressive Insurance is that you name your price, or you choose your own services, and build your own insurance. If you live in a desert, you don’t need to worry about a tree falling on your home. Similarly, I don’t need pregnancy insurance in my Health Insurance, because I am an unmarried male.
And yet, the State and Federal Government mandates that I must have Pregnancy Insurance in my Health Insurance. It makes no sense. Let me buy what I want, and ignore the rest.
McCain suggested this, and the idea was destroyed through media savy Democratic Operatives who refused to understand what exactly he was suggesting.
Let the Free Market fidn the solution. Remove the chains upon the Invisible Hand. It will work out.
But that would mean lifting the chains off the shoulders of the People, and that is something that the Government can not allow. After all, we might vote them out.
