You miss the point that Galt wants to negotiate coverage with an insurance provider without the government dictating the elements of that coverage.
So you can "negotiate" it down to where I have to pay for it again?

Terrific!

That was void of an answer to the comment

Americans (without a political affiliation) are upset about the higher cost of premiums and increase of out of pocket expenses.

Any on topic comments?

Uhhh, the charts are still there ya know right? I don't see any activity that pivots around 2 PM and every energy stock I've looked at since the speech is up.
I'm not so sure that's what I said yesterday.
You stated yesterday the DOW was doing great and then it tanked in the last two hours.

What chart are you claiming to be using?

We were paying for own Health Care prior to Obamacare.

I don't think your point is valid.

Why would you, or anyone, have to pay for my medical care?

If Galt had to purchase insurance outside a group, Galt would buy a high deductible policy that would rarely ever have a claim, except in extraordinary circumstances. Galt would pay cash up to the deductible.

Here is SPDR-Energy one of the largest energy stocks out there.

It was tanking as Flack said until the stock market realized Obama was delaying taking action and placing main focus on coal.

That isn't how it happened, perhaps you should consult a 3 day chart and have another look. The tanking started at the open.

Let's say the operation has become more concentrated.

Power companies have had so many mergers and so many name changes in recent years that it's tough to keep track. Add that to the fact that some plants have always had multiple owners, some with tiny percentages. So, if a utility owns 2% of a nuclear plant, are they a nuclear utility?

Looked more like the typical post-lunch lull. The broader indices did too, happens almost every day. Obama isn't nearly as all-powerful as y'all give him credit for. Bernanke, that's a different story.
No way you say the mid-morning dip is stocks was due to hunger.

I am using stocks identified as gainers for this year.

We were?

Medicare/medicaid recipients and the uninsured who didn't pay their bills (lots of emergency room use there) and who's costs were passed on to you and me were paying for their own healthcare before Obamacare?

You were the one making the claim that the stocks were having a come back yesterday and someone or another was wrong just before it tanked.

That is the way the stock market is.

When income is arbitrarily taken from my wallet for the sole purpose of putting it in yours, that IS socialism.

Open 14,805 @ 9:30
Low 14,552 @ 11:30
Close 14,660 @ 16:00

It dropped 229 points in the first hour of trading and was off 145 for the day.

I think that what I said yesterday was that the market had made its correction last week and that Monday was just a reaction to the situation in China. Feel free to prove me wrong.

Because we pay for people who don't pay with higher costs. We also compete with tens of millions of healthcare customers who have no stake in limiting their care because the government pays for it. During the debate the teabagger crowd was demanding the government write a blank check to pay for some theoretical granny's hip replacement cutely labeling the practice of limiting coverage "death panels".
