A question for Richard Mourdock: Why are you running for U. S. senator? You believe that government is not the solution but only the problem. Integrity suggests corporation work is where you believe the real solutions to societal problems lie.
Your philosophy: Compromise means that others come to your beliefs. Are you the sole possessor of all knowledge and wisdom?
You fight government health care. Medicare’s overhead is 3 percent. Corporate health care’s overhead is 20 percent to 30 percent.
And why is paying Stephen Hemsley -- United Health Groups CEO $3.2 million a year despite having an $895 million class-action lawsuit against him and having a golden parachute of $10.7 million — preferable over Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with a $199,700 annual salary?
Taxed Enough Already, some people proclaim. “Anybody but Obama” is another chant. Obama’s administration has the lowest tax rate in 30 years. Does all of this compute?
