Fox News Blogger Scott Blakeman hits the nail on the head about why the Republicans are against Obama’s health care reform:
As Republicans, we ask ‘Who says our healthcare system doesn’t work?’ The CEO of AETNA made $24 million last year. It certainly works for him. Sure there’s 47 million Americans who don’t have health insurance, but we’re more concerned about making sure those CEO’s don’t get a salary cut.
That’s why we hate the idea of a public option. By increasing competition and lowering costs, the CEO of AETNA might have to settle for only $12 million a year. Who can live on that? And if the insurance companies make less money, that means they’ll contribute less money to our reelection campaigns.
