Kim Holland, Oklahoma insurance commissioner, has come completely unhinged
Yes, this is one of those kinds of things I mean when I say I hold my nose and stand with the Left.
Crazy has as many varieties as there are individuals, man. Now, this isn't your garden variety crazy, nor is it free-range. It's more a cultivated, domestic brand of crazy; I'd call it "Longhorn" but that's Texas, not Oklahoma, and you always "Grr" at me when I mention the "S" word, so what else is left here? High-end State Bureaucrat Crazy? Whatever, she seems harmless enough, but I wouldn't dangle a red banner in front of her, because she might charge (unless she doesn't have health insurance, in which case she would have to revoke her own credit cards).
Is she related to Inhofe, by any chance, because he's his own special breed of crazy, too, you know.
And just HOW much insurance do we need to get a driver's license? Do we need dental insurance? Vision? A policy that covers cancer care?
What's next? Long-term disability? Long-term skilled nursing?
And WHAT, pray tell, is the connection between a person purchasing a sports ticket and HEALTH INSURANCE?
Another thing that ticks me off. I was at the hospital Tuesday for some tests, and the very first thing they asked me after my name is if I wanted to pay my portion of today's bill and get a 20 percent discount! They even had a price list at check-in! Look up your service and we'll tell you what your estimated payment is. This was before I ever got the paper bracelet put on or was taken for my tests!
Better ways of policy depend upon better people, left or right.
