    So once medicine is socialized, it will be ok for the government to mandate it. More anti-capitalist stuff from DonnaY.

    I can't find the tweets now, but Kevin Spacey's name came up last night, and not as a victim. A Hollywood person was accusing him of molesting one of her kin. She seems to have taken the post down now. She didn't name names, she said because she didn't have permission from the victim.

    And because I am not a lawyer, a little more Googling brought me to the McCarran–Ferguson Act Apparently it overturned at least a portion of Paul-v-Virginia giving Congress "the right" to enforce anti-trust actions against insurers in the states. According to Wiki:

    Here's a SCOTUS decision that indicates I'm more right than you. In before "SCOTUS IS WRONG TOO." So now you're arguing against the 10th AMendment and 150 years of legal decisions. Maybe SCOTUS was wrong. But as it stands, their rulings are considered the determination of what's constitutional. At this point, we should be amending the constitution.

    Oh FFS. If they were violating the Constitution, SCOTUS would be doing something, not the legislature. Congress can't write constitutional law without amending the Constitution.

    It isn't science. It's law. The law allows the states to regulate insurers who sell policies to the residents of their state. If it didn't, the FedGov wouldn't be trying to erase those boundaries. IF you were right, insurers woule already be crossing state lines, so we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    angelatc No, the service (medical care) takes place in your home state. Your state currently has laws regulating the insurers who sell insurance to residents in your state. They also regulate payments to the providers in your state.

    There are already certain plants that can't be sold in certain states. California regulates safety and emission standards for automobiles that can be sold within its boundaries. Some states allow 18 year olds to buy cigarettes but they can't legally buy them on the internet and have them delivered into their home. Auto insurance varies from state to state. But if I go to Ohio and try to buy car insurance because it's cheaper there, they won't let me because I live in Michigan. If I lie and say I live in Ohio, they won't be obligated to pay because I purchased the policy fraudulently. The reason ours costs more is because we have a particular potentially expensive mandatory benefit - unlimited lifetime medical for accident-related injuries. There is a push to reform our auto insurance. We have 49 other states we can look at to see what works. What the state should and shouldn't do is a different conversation than what the constitution allows them to do.

    That's possible, but I bear in mind that's exactly what they said when they erased the banking lines between states. It would lessen the administrative burdens and consumers would see lower costs. I believed it then. Instead we got a massive amount of industry consolidation which created those now legendary too big to fail behemoths. I feel like this is that same scenario being played out. It's just another power grab by the Fed. And here's the bigger point. If it's better for the Feds to run it then amend the constitution. I'm more irritated about that than I am the insurance thing. If they bring back the cheap catastrophic coverage only policies, then I'm happier than I am now.

    The states have (had) the right to regulate insurers who sold insurance products to the residents of that state. Before Obamacare, it meant that states like Illinois required well baby checks and vaccines in all policies, while Arkansas allowed policies that only kicked in when your expenses went over $10k a year. (Guess which state had cheaper insurance?) It also means that the state government had the authority to get involved in disputes. It means that the insurer has to prove over and over and over that it has enough cash to cover the claims the state expects its insured patients to file. It meant the person who sold the policy has taken tests to confirm they understand the insurance laws in said state. It also meant that insurance cost less in (using the example above) Arkansas than Illinois. Partly because the mandated coverages were lessened in Arkansas, although Obamacare already erased that right. But it was also partly because costs were simply less in Arkansas. Taxes are lower, demand is lower, etc.... Allowing someone in Chicago to buy a policy at the rates the Arkansas residents paid will only serve to drive the prices in Arkansas up.

    The constitution specifically forbids the states from taxing interstate commerce. This is exactly what I mean when I say people who don't understand insurance shouldn't try to argue for this. The regulations are ridiculously different from state to state. And more critically, each state demands that insurers maintain certain reserve levels. It's a financially complex product. It isn't as simple as "I send them money and then they send it to my doctor." They have to maintain a certain level of cash reserves in each state in order to guarantee that they will indeed be able to pay the bills. They're not allowed to just use the money they take in from premiums and use it to pay claims. That's a pyramid scam. And this next part is scary to me as a numbers person - I have no idea how they're maintaining those reserves. Their investment options are limited, and interest rates are still depressed far below market value. No math I can do makes any sense. Taking this away from the states and giving it to the Feds is probably the insurers getting ready for the inevitable crash. And instead of a couple of states being affected, millions of people across the whole country will suddenly have no insurance, and a huge stack of bills their hospital forwarded when the insurer went bankrupt. It's the next too big to fail, brought to you by John McCain who has aggressively working on this for 15 years.

    You literally fabricating an alternate reality to avoid the uncomfortable current reality. You are right. You will be contracting with an agency in another state. You cannot do that now because of states' rights. The 10th Amendment says that the state has the right to regulate the products sold to the residents of the state. This legislation erases those lines and hands the regulations to the feds. Constitutionally this is a loss. Freedom-wise, this is a loss.

    Its a problem, alright. I'm not sure what the solution is, which is part of why I'm so frustrated all the time. Most people can't even comprehend the definition of the word "violence.'

    I never said that those who come into a cop's crosshairs are "angels." I do think most of them shouldn't have been bullied to begin with. Take a crack user, for instance. Morally, in my mind, that's wrong, similar to how getting drunk is wrong. That's a vice, not a crime. I know you already know that, but I'm just clarifiying what my position actually is.

    I really, really like the idea behind the FSP. I'm not in a position to be able to participate right now, but I really like the principle of the whole thing. Living around people with similar philosophical principles would definitely make a lot of things easier, and it would mean not almost having to give tacit approval to the legalized violence (or shut up) just to live our daily lives.

    This is tough, even for me, because like everyone else I know a cop who's a respectable, nice guy. I alluded to such in the conversation I linked you to at the beginning of this conversation.

    But, at the end of the day, no matter how professionally they may act, is being a government cop really a legitimate profession? I don't think so. Because it requires you to bully people who haven't harmed anybody else, even if you do it "professionally."

    I guess the way I see this is, and maybe I'm wrong, but it takes 51% of the population to change something with an election, but if 10% of the people were convinced that this government was illegitimate, and were aware of the existence of that 10%, it could crumble just like that.

    This isn't a criticism of you, BTW. We need people who can talk to the masses at their level. I'm arrogant as all heck precisely because I know I know better and most people don't. Which doesn't "work" even if it is right.

    I don't even drive fast either. I still pretty much view people who make a living stealing money from people who "drive too fast" and people who smoke certain plants (I don't do illegal drugs either) as being "bad people." I was curious what your thoughts on it were.

    I'm with you on electing more Rand Pauls, but I don't think that's really the solution. The only way I see this system changing is delegitimatizing the system. People need to wake up and realize that the government are NOT their legitimate masters. Then social pressure needs to be put on those who would be cops or soldiers for a living, as it would have been for soldiers and tax collectors in 1st century Rome. The problem now is that most people are brainwashed into thinking that their immediate rulers are "Putting their lives on the line" even while they criticize the government for being out of control.

    Hey, as our resident "Sane" ancap, I'm curious what your thoughts are on the conversation I'm having here: (I'm "David" on there). You don't necessarily have to join to post, you can post as a guest, and I did so for awhile before joining.
  7. have. It takes me awhile to come around at times. I like to be sure.
  8. Replying to your rep comment: no, those sig lines don't bother me at all. But they really do seem counterproductive to what Rand is trying to accomplish right now. As for what a certain member thinks about what I said....well, I guess I'll just have to go on without her approval. Somehow.
