To try and make a point, I dug out just the first quarter profits of the 5 largest Health care insurers! It certainly opened my eyes and if you think Congress does not have these same numbers; let me sell you a bridge!

This health care thing, and the media discussions and Congressional discussions and voting do not seem to be wrapped up in helping us the citizens of this great country to have reasonable cost health care.

To try and make a point, I dug out just the first quarter profits of the 5 largest Health care insurers! It certainly opened my eyes and if you think Congress does not have these same numbers; let me sell you a bridge!

The totals in a real number for these 5 companies is $15,724,000,000.

From the Web, there are a total of 56 Healthcare insurance companies in the USA Starting with AARP and ending with United American Insurance Company that include the 5 above!

And just to pick a profit number from a company we are all familiar with, Apple Second quarter 2017 had $17.89 billion profit.

Again, the total for the 5 largest health care companies for 1 quarter of the year is $15,724,000,000

This number in words is fifteen billion seven hundred twenty-four million Dollars.

And that $15,724,000,000 is not money used for Health care, IT IS PROFIT FOR SOMEONE AND MONIES NOT USED FOR HEALTH CARE or paid to healthcare professionals!

And to compare to a company we are all familiar with, The total profit for Apple for 1st quarter 2017 is $17,900,000,000 (a little over $2 billion more for a worldwide company, vs 5 USA Health insurance companies!!!

And this profit number in words is Seventeen billion nine hundred million Dollars!

And with Apple, those profits are for something all people bought and all people got to USE!!!!!

Who is kidding who here?? Who is congress really trying to help????

By the way, there are 32 countries in the world that have Universal Health Care!

Several notable countries are our Northern Neighbor, Canada, and also New Zealand, Australia, Great Britton, and Germany! The citizen’s health in these countries is not set up to be a profit center for a few insurance companies!

How many complaints do you hear about healthcare in these countries?

Think about it!
