Quote of the Day: Dylan Ratigan

"...As we watch the senators debate a public option that most of us would never be able to use, and it seems, lawmakers in general shying away from a bill that would subject health insurance companies to anti-trust laws. Other than Major League Baseball, only health insurance has an exemption from the Sherman anti-trust laws.

Instead of improving our health care systems by creating and enforcing free and fair markets, our politicians continue to engage in back room deals with health insurance companies and big pharma...instead of seeking answers to the problem of paying for and providing medicine to us.

We are doing the exact opposite in fact. Taxpayer money continues to be played with by politicians who are desperately trying to protect the status quo, leaving patients and doctors as fodder for their money game." -Dylan Ratigan
