    LeRoy,I had not heard of Hickenlooper until you mentioned him. They have even discussed a split ticket together.

    Think what could happen in this country if they got rid of the hateful old fogies and brought in moderates of both sides.

    Hickenlooper said he wouldn't rule out them running together. Would heal a lot of wounds. But they are too old as well. Need much younger.

    Both are 65. Kasich is a youthful 65.

    McAuliffe is 60. All 3 are in much better shape than Trump. Bernie,too.

    So am I ,Jets. I think Trump may have just popped the hate boil. People are sick of it.

    I hope the Governors get together and fix health care for all. Wouldn't that be great?

    Wonder how it would work? Neither are in congress so they would have to get members on board to even propose it. I would hope some would at least consider it?

    What a slap in the face to the Republican Congress, McConnell and Ryan.

    I actually think Trump would sign it. He is desperate for a win. It would show who the real culprits are,so maybe we could do some house cleaning. Both parties if they refuse to co-operate.

    RW: Explain that to someone who doesn’t know what reinsurance is, just very briefly.

    JH: Sure. So what happens is, too often, people have been going onto the exchanges getting their insurance when they’re sick then when they get better, they get off the insurance. And so what happens is you have a concentration of people who are very expensive and have lots of illnesses on the insurance and some of them are very, very ill and have huge costs. We have several in the state that are $4 or $5 million a year.

    RW: And who thus raise the cost of insurance for everyone.

    JH: Right. Unless there’s some way of pulling or balancing that; pulling them out of the pool. And that’s – you use reinsurance in almost every type of insurance program to cut off those hilltops as we say."
