The blues are their own special breed. They all have their territory but they share their service network. So if a company goes to care first ga but has an office in Indiana, the Indiana employees will essentially be using anthem's services (and some of that revenue will then change hands from care first to anthem). But the blues are a special case... They can't really expand to compete with each other directly (and on national accounts, whoever covers the headquarters...
That's moving the goalposts a bit.Having to meet state reporting requirements isn't the same as not being allowed to operate there. Insurance companies already operate in multiple states and can deal with this...and often this stuff is handled by outside vendors anyways. You buy some software, it takes care of it, not your problem.Whether or not you have to meet those requirements...you still have the problem of simultaneously building up a provider network and a...
I've never been too impressed with that rule. On one hand it is silly (but a bunch of people would probably have cried "states rights" back when the republicans still cared about that).But on the other hand, it isn't actually that hard to sell insurance in a new state as an established insurer. You might have to build a network (but you'd have to do that as a newcomer anyways, and can use a rental network until you are sufficiently built up).But getting legal permission?...
lol...gun nuts are so goofy. If they were really going to take away your guns, then why are you buying them just to have them ripped back out of your hands? And then when the "go play with your deadly toys" guy wins, you are like "meh, I guess I don't really feel like buying one anymore". It's like my cat when I close the door to a room.
LOL. Mandate? What the fuck is a mandate?If getting a mandate was a thing, there would be a full suite of justices sitting on the supreme court right now. States wouldn't have bailed on their ACA exchanges and medicare expansions. The government wouldn't have shutdown.Obama destroyed his opposition in both the electoral college and the popular vote. Scalia died almost 11 months before Obama was due to leave office, but no, we'd better wait to see what the "will of the...
Although I will say that I am having trouble reconciling these with the overall turnout results from other sources. Even adding in 3rd parties, I can't find a breakdown that matches the turnout figure. Does this mean there were a bunch of people who didn't fill in a president? The turnout people sometimes count all ballots for some states and "highest office" ballots for others. Either way, it is clear that both parties had trouble getting anyone to turn out for *them*...
Weren't people arguing about turnout? I think ataturk was pointing to specific segment/state turnout numbers being high...but this makes it look like it was absolutely low. More like a battle of who turned off the most voters rather than who brought in a new kind of voter (unless someone has stats that Trump was bringing in a lot of people who didn't used to vote). I understand all numbers aren't in yet...in fact the same wikipedia shot currently has hillary up to...
Yeah, my gf wasn't even a huge Hillary supporter or anything, but she's pretty heartbroken. But much of her life's work involves helping the sorts of marginalized people that a bunch of Trump supporters clearly don't give a shit about... And they have now been validated in their beliefs.
My wind power shares took a beating this morning after CEO had acknowledged that a Trump presidency was not great for the industry. Not sure I fully agree with that assessment though. He obviously isn't the alternative energy candidate, but two big pieces of evidence presented were him suing over a wind farm in sight of his golf course and his comments over global warming being a Chinese hoax (which he likely doesn't actually believe). Meanwhile, Pence's state is home...
I wonder what reddit is going to do. I think they have just been tolerating there offensive behavior and constant site rule breaking... Figuring it would go away when he loses and that and that any actions to shut down the abuse would have more fallout than letting it play out a little longer.
