Hump Day Headlines Abbreviated Version

I'm technically off from work today, so this is an abbreviated edition.

So here's an article about the new Commissioner of the Connecticut Insurance Department and his position on holding rate review hearings -- and my comments about the need for public access and transparency. As you know, I'm in favor of public hearings so that, when a rate increase is allowed, everybody understands why.

In the national news, a Democrat won a special election in upstate New York primarily by pounding the GOP position on Medicare. Is this a foretelling of 2012? The Dems sure hope so.

VP Biden appears to be making some progress in his negotiations with the GOP over the debt.

The Governor of Vermont is set to sign historic single-payer health insurance bill.

Those are the quickie highlights. Have a great day! Jennifer
