    It will only be for their employees

    Maybe some type of socialized medicine

    I like this combo, though. And Buffett doesn't play bullshit games, he's about value and efficiency.

    An employee network cant be socialized by definition. Socialized medicine involves the public.

    Please notice this is big money.

    It takes big money to form this kind of company and work in this industry.

    Thanks to the government.

    We appreciate you Obama (and the rest of the morons who create regulations that make it harder for us to get competition).

    I think they are looking at something other than....Lets give Blue Cross a call

    By controlling the insurance themselves, they cut out the Big Insurance middleman

    They can also negotiate special deals with doctors and hospitals
