Sebelius to Thune: gafg

Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) had to shut down a rant from the disrespectful Sen. don Juan Thune (earth hater-SD).
The matter involves a relatively small segment of the insurance market -- the 5% of Americans who buy individual policies, unlike the vast majority who get their coverage through their jobs or government programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and others. While only a sliver of the overall market, it still involves 12 million people, including more than 1 million who have received letters from their insurers telling them current policies are being discontinued.

Thune would rather boost funding for a bloated military, one that enjoys free birth control and abortions no less, than ease medical insurance burdens on those least able to pay.

Intersecting with today's Senate hearing is a story from Mother Jones showing that South Dakota and Sebelius' home state of Kansas see most lobby cash coming from the health industry.
