It is an indirect causation. Government intervention is one of the
primary causes of increasing healthcare costs. As those cost rise
insurance companies must pony up more money. Obviously this means
higher premiums.

Another cause is the demand from consumers to cover more procedures
and a higher percentage. Again their is no free lunch as many
Americans and liberals believe and, dissapointingly, senior citizens
that should know better.

Few things raise my ire like news interviews with seniors complaining
that Medicare does not cover drugs. A reporterette once asked a
senior who was complaining, "what about your children ot other
family, can't they help?" Her outragous answer was, "well they have
children to support and can't afford it either."
Arrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhh!
