Quotes

The private guys won’t risk their own capital for such loser projects, but the government is only too willing to risk our money."
Former Obama health adviser Ezekiel Emanuel predicts that within the next three years, "a few big, blue-chip companies will announce their intention to stop providing health insurance. . . Then the floodgates will open."
