I've been reading more about the health care reform and it's pretty obvious that both parties screwed us on that and the only ones who gained anything were the insurance companies who only care about the bottom line of their bankbook. I don't see either party offering help and certainly not the tea party who doesn't care about health care at all other than another way to hate Obama.

Please know that Regence BCBS of Oregon is a non profit company so they don't make a profit

char, "profit" simply is called "net income surplus" (or a similar term) in nonprofit organizations. See:

It's still the same thing, an excess of revenues over expenses. Regence certainly tries to make a "profit." And it has the same high-paid executives and wasteful bureaucracy of an inefficient profit-making company.
