The one "questioner" whose appearance summarized the tone of the ABC propaganda project was AETNA CEO Ron Williams. Here is the description of Williams' appearance on the farce:
One of the biggest points of contention opponents of government’s involvement in health care has been the threat that it would crowd out private health insurance providers by creating market forces they couldn’t compete with – or what Aetna Insurance president Ron Williams called it as part of the town hall: “introducing a new competitor that has rulemaking ability, the government would have.”
While William’s was introduced as an audience questioner he actually faced a question from Sawyer, which wound up being a populist rant critical of his industry and emphasizing the president’s claim that insurance companies need to be “kept honest.”
“If I could, I’m going to bring in Ron Williams from Aetna, CEO of Aetna, and if I can reverse the order a little bit Mr. President, I’d like to ask a question of him and then let you comment on his answer,” Sawyer said. “Mr. Williams, Aetna, to take one, an insurance company. We hear people all over the country people see their premiums going up 119 percent in the last several years. They see the profits of the insurance companies, the billions and billions of dollars, even in a lean year. They see profits in the billions of dollars. Is the President right – that you need to be kept honest?”
ABC will trumpet having a major insurance company CEO on the Obama Show as "presenting both sides." Of course, Williams did not get to ask a question and was put on the defensive with a query built on a silly premise that HE had to answer and Barry Vladimir Hussein Soetero Obama was allowed to respond to his response. Hopefully, the dumb masses will see through this media charade. Whenever a salesman gives you the runaround and tries to steer the pitch toward certain talking points, most of us know he are about to be conned. Politicians do the same thing, except that they can use force to keep you in line after you buy their wares.
