Big Winner in Schwarzenegger Health Plan

Insurance companies.

They can sit back and enjoy the prospect of 37 million guaranteed customers while the governor's plan throws in enough red herrings (the uninsured, the uninsurable, the immigrants, the poor, the small businesses) to keep the opposition and the media off their tails.

Now THAT'S lobbying.

Second big winner: Anyone who wanders around thinking, yeah, the one way my health care could be improved is to have greater involvement from my insurance company.

OK, we now return to our regularly scheduled neighborhood cheerleading.
