INVESTORS IN HEALTH CARE SEEM TO BET ON INCUMBENT

Generally, most people assume that the Business Community does better under a Republican Administration; however, that might be a fallacy. Look at the Bounce that the Economy got during the Clinton Administration and, then, the Dive that began during the Bush Administration, which resulted in The Great Recession of 2007-2009.  But, this has happened time-and-again in the past.

As mentioned in the linked article, by Andrew Ross Sorkin, subject as above, in today’s NY Times, the S & P (broad-based) Stock Index has risen by 9.5% during the past three months, and the overall Stock Market is at its highest point since the Financial Crisis, http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/08/20/investors-in-health-care-seem-to-bet-on-incumbent/?ref=business.

As you can see from the article, several Health Care Insurers have purchased smaller insurers ahead of the November Election. That seems to indicate that major players in the Health Care Marketplace wish to act ahead of time. Now, IF they thought that Romney would win, and the Affordable (Health) Care Act (ACA) would be repealed, they would keep their powder dry at the moment’ But, apparently, they think otherwise.

There are a number of very, VERY big contributors who are betting on the Romney and Ryan Campaign; so, we will have to wait until November to learn who was right. But, as the patron saint of the Republican “Right”, President Ronald Reagan said, in Moscow, “Trust; but Verify’. Mitt and Paul, where is the verification?
