Timmy The Tea Partier

Timmy The Tea Partier awakened bright and early. Timmy had an exciting day ahead of him. Like every other morning Timmy starts the day with a nice, strong cup of coffee. Timmy does not consider the fact that the Federal government monitors his water supply, to ensure a quality standard. After his coffee, Timmy enjoys a brisk walk around the block.

Reagan and his cronies got it all started, but the shift could not have lasted as long without Rush.

HELP!! I NEED A RE-EXPLANATION OF....

during the vigorous healthcare insurance reform debates of the recent past, Thom spoke about how self insured companies/corporations actually can profit from being "self-insured". I have a crummy memory, but am interested in this subject. My corporate employer is a self insured company that utilizes UHC as ttheir plan "administrator".
