Mackey is just another dangerous libertarian freak who spouts "free market" blather wihout caring a wit about how the market really screws us by consolidating wealth and ignoring human needs. Being wealthy doesn't mean you are either intelligent or caring - it just means your rich. And he wants to things just as they are - health insurance profits through the roof - the uninsured be damned. We have Medicare because the health insurers would never cover those over 65 - they get sick too much! What a system. For all those free marketers out there - give up your big bad Medicare coverage and be a man about it. If your a "winner" you will be just fine - only losers need health insurance.

If you want socialized medicine and a government nanny state then why dont you just move to one of the contries that offer that like Canada or England. Oh thats right its not working out so good there. Unfortunatelly there are no free lunches. The "Free Market" is what made this country the greatest place to live in the world in less the 200 years. The vast majority of problems that exist in our society are created by the government trying to controll the "free market" to garantee outcome. Well my friend it is imposible to garantee outcome. The Free Market is the only thing that works, leave it alone and all can prosper!

You are a liberal sheep who again, knows nothing of the person you attack. He's a "dangerous libertarian freak"? He cares nothing towards human needs? If you knew anything yo would know he is one of the best CEO's in this country and his employees love him. Not to mention this guy gave his yearly salary away to charity, yeah, he sounds real greedy. But as usual you goofs know nothing, you just attack and think later at the ramifications. Do you far left nuts really think you can hurt this CEO who is worth 100's of millions? Please, you will hurt the employees and that's about it. Nice going nutjobs.
