"Obama's Health Care Bill Will Limit Insurance Rate Hikes"
Although a federal insurance rate board might be more effective, it seems to me to be the utmost in government interference in private company operations. Given the present role of insurance in health care, providing competition through a public option would be preferable.
This problem demonstrates the foolishness of providing "insurance" against a basic human need. And if insurers can't use risk analysis or avoid pre-existing condition coverage, where's the "insurance"?
