You Just Can't Argue With Logic Like That!

Well, Senator Orrin Hatch (Republican of Utah) opposes a public option for health insurance because, he says, people should worry about some nameless, faceless government employee making health care decisions for them.

Boy! That really IS a concern. I’d much rather keep the system we now have … with some nameless, faceless employee at the profit-making Aetna making health care decisions for me.

By the way, as mentioned here some weeks ago, the total annual compensation for Ron Williams, CEO of the aforementioned Aetna, is $24 million. That's "annual" ... as in every year. Clearly, this guy's main concern is my health care.
