Pointless, futile, tiring

This is why I don’t really have anything else to say about the Democrat’s health reform bill. Movin’ Meat is complaining about his company’s insurance company imposing a $500 fee on emergency room use by two of their insureds. I am perfectly willing to stipulate that the trips to the emergency room were reasonable and should have been covered without question and that the insurance company is behaving badly by attempting to impose the fee.

Movin’ Meat was puzzled by the fee because it should have been prevented by his State’s insurance regulations. When he investigated, he discovered that his State’s insurance regulations did not apply; his company’s contract is controlled by ERISA. ERISA is Federal law and does not outlaw this type of behavior on the part of insurance companies.

Movin’ Meat is a strong supporter of the Democrat’s health insurance plan which will place control of insurance companies completely in the hands of the Federal government.

A. You just can’t make this stuff up.

B. Reality-based, my foot.

C. What logical argument could I possibly make that would have any impact on someone like Movin’ Meat?
