  1. Your vision of Waxman’s demand for documents is extremely skewed. Whatever the actual effect of the health care bill (which remains entirely unknown at this time), the United States government has every right to demand that these companies explain their situation to the satisfaction of the government and everyone who does business with these companies. If the companies are in fact engaging in irresponsible claims and trying to bully the government by stating false numbers about how much money they will lose, then these companies need to come clean with their accountants and prove their positions beyond a reasonable doubt. I suspect that all this blustering by companies is based on false or questionable information and their lies should be exposed. More than ever, large corporations should be held accountable for the information they dispense. They can say what they want because this is America but if they’re lying, then everyone has a right to know and the government has a duty to expose them.
