  1. …stating that California required everyone to buy auto insurance and rates went up anyway… and the same thing will happen with “universal health care”.

    This nonsense probably is – or will soon be – going viral. So I’d like to share my response to the idiot’s letter. Forewarned is forearmed.

    Mr. H stated that auto insurance rates have gone up in California since regulation was imposed by Prop-103. He is correct.

    Between 1989 and 2005 in-state insurance rate rose by 12.9%

    During that same period, insurance rates increased in all other states by an average of 50.2%. California had the LOWEST rate increase in the nation.

    California’s strict oversight of auto insurance providers is a SUCCESS STORY, and a good example of the kind of reform we now need in HEALTH INSURANCE.


    Mr. Hicks has been duped by talk-radio fear mongers who will say ANYTHING to protect insurance industry profits.

    I hope he gets angry about THAT.
