    According to GAO, some insurers are decreasing premiums or leaving their rates unchanged in order to comply with the MLR requirements. Three companies told GAO that premiums will either fall next year or increase by a smaller amount than they would have without the MLR.

    The changes to premiums are coming in conjunction with cuts to brokers' premiums, GAO found. Insurance agents and brokers have warned repeatedly that the MLR will hurt them. And while consumer advocates have argued that the effects are overstated, the GAO report seems to support agents' claims.

    So the agents settle for less like the majority of working America does. No big deal.

    Lets hear the right whine about a Maximum wage law :)

    Holy Bat Shit!!!
    What a moron you are. Your own piece states 3 companies (big fucking deal), and says they could still increase premiums!


    Self explanatory, even for a moron like you.

    So now you know that the GAO is wrong sometimes (like i've seen you say in other threads where GAO numbers make the pres/libs look bad).

    Speaking of morons....Where did TM say that all insurance companies have lowered premiums? Answer: TM didn't say that. Here, try reading:
