Is your state insurance commissioner doing his/her job?
Who is your state commissioner of insurance? Most people don't know or care what the job is.
Part of that job is to be a consumer advocate and part to regulate insurance companies. Considering the cost of our health insurance premiums and deductibles, which side do you think your state commissioner is on? It's not the highest paid job in state government, but most taxpayers and the unemployed wouldn't mind sitting on their duff collecting $45-$50,000 salary a year to rubber-stamp whatever the insurance and medical industries asked for. But who's the first to get laid off?
Teachers, road workers, nurses, and the state workers who process government-funded programs for the poor, elderly, low-income, disabled, homeless. Seems to me lay-offs should start from the top on down.
