But Ness just nailed it better than i possibly could have.

As for competition, there isn't any. That's why Ness used the term "monopoly." When monopolization happens, capitalism stops working as an economic model. That's why the US has anti-trust laws. Furthermore, regulation is NEEDED in markets like insurance, and i'll give you a very good example of why.

Back in the early 80's, Florida didn't have much regulation on life insurance carriers. Certain companies were able to make billions by selling policies but never settling claims, by making the claims process literally impossible to complete. Eventually Florida's state government fixed the problem, and a few people even went to prison for fraud, but for the most part what they did was technically legal, and most got away with it.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

The point is that WE are the ones who need protection. The insurance companies will bank either way.

There are very, very few (if any) corporations of any kind that put the needs of people ahead of profits. That's one of the roles of government - to regulate corporations to protect workers, consumers, citizens - all of us. While government may not be doing a great job, it certainly doing a better job than "self-policing" or "the market". And our job as citizens is to elect people who will actually put our interests first.

Yes. As a nation, we have consistently failed at that this millenium so far, but to be fair to us, we have been consistently misled.
