Look at this excerpt from an article I found at MarketWatch:
Somewhere in their respective wood-paneled corporate boardrooms, Angela Braly and Stephen Hemsley are breathing a sigh of relief -- or rubbing their hands in glee.
At the very least, the chief executives of WellPoint Inc. (WLP 53.63, +1.44, +2.76%) and UnitedHealth Group Inc. (UNH 28.99, +0.93, +3.31%) were rejoicing as their stock prices shot up nearly 4% in Monday trading. But don't be surprised if they're also doing that glee thing.
Why? The nation's two biggest health insurers and everyone else in the managed-care sector counted on the Democratic Party to do what it always does: cave in when the going gets tough. And just like clockwork, Democrats appear to be true to form.
Thanks, Chicken Shits. I would laugh too if it wasn’t something as important as the future of health care. It’s the same every single time. Do-good Democrats try to do the right thing and play fair in the process. Do-rotten Republicans and their legions of liars stir up a gullible, volatile segment of the population to scream at the top of their lungs. And, as it says above, the going gets tough and Dems fold like a circus leaving town. Embarrassing.
