    This sure seems like the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration method of playing fair on the health insurance issue...........:eusa_silenced:

    (from the Washington Post)

    The federal government has ordered health insurers to stop telling Medicare beneficiaries that proposed health reform legislation could hurt seniors and jeopardize their benefits.

    Proposed health reform legislation would sharply reduce funding for Medicare Advantage plans, and the insurance industry has been battling to prevent that from happening. The bill unveiled last week by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, would directly cut payments to Medicare Advantage plans by an estimated $123 billion over 10 years, and it would indirectly reduce funding for those plans by another $15.6 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

    The same bunch who pushed McCain-Feingold and Fairness.
    What else would you possibly expect from them?
    Corporations are evil and need to be stopped. That's their rap. It's OK to muzzle them.
