18. Insurance companies don't care so much about costs...

... as they do the size of their revenue streams.

The bigger the revenue stream, the more they can siphon off for their top executives and shareholders.

There's a "sweet" spot between the pain of the insured and corporate profits that has nothing to do with health.

What's worse, here in the U.S.A., even people with platinum insurance plans or great wealth often receive wildly inappropriate and sometimes dangerous medical care.

If I was emperor of the U.S.A. I'd nationalize the whole damned health care "system" and pay good people to get medical training so they'd graduate from school debt free.
