Indeed, I realize now I wasn't very clear. I figured doing this would greatly hurt the industry since it effectively places a cap on salaries, bonuses, benefits (unless I'm not misunderstanding the situation). Or as you said, will raise costs at an even more astronomical rate forcing the electorate to give up on the quixotic "private sector will find a way to provide healthcare" idea.
I always suspected the provision that ensures insurance companies spend 80% of premiums on medical care was a cyanide pill slipped into the bill without the companies knowing. This will destroy them in the long-run and eventually force us onto some kind of nationally-run system more appropriate for a developed country.
I thought the issue was that they were classified as 501(c)(4) organizations which, at least nominally, are supposed to promote "social welfare". Including political campaigning and raising money for your ideological brethren is a pretty broad reading of the law, I think.
Can anyone explain to me the benefits of quantum computing, beyond the security benefits, in layman's terms? I find this interesting, albeit over my head.
My understanding is that there is political infighting going on in the upper echelons of the church. This particular story is about two LA Church leaders, but I think you can take this fight writ large in the church: http://news.yahoo.com/mahony-defends-legacy-church-abuse-blo...
The way Ratzinger handled the abuse scandal, the leak of his butler, the tug-of-war between reformers and fundamentalists are revealing serious cracks inside the leadership. I've heard cardinals say they are comfortable with a much smaller religious body if it means being true to doctrine. Even if that means giving up that 1 billion number they seem to harp on. I'm not for sure saying that's why he resigned, but his general weakness as an administrator probably contributed to it as well.
Thanks, I appreciate you taking the time to enlighten us on this!
Well done. Are you by chance aware of any counter-attacks U.S. government or companies are conducting against Chinese or other attackers? I think it's warranted considering how much they try to steal and destroy on our end of it.
