14. He said it, because it's true.

As long as they're engaged in legal commerce, they deserve a return on their investment.

It's a small "c" capitalism observation. The question of entitlement needs to be answered by society as a whole. We must decide whether we want to continue with the current system, or should we fundamentally revise it.

I take the President's words as merely reminding us all that, while we're using this present system, we should question the extent to which we allow private insurers to remain a legitimate enterprise.

You're not going to get many presidents declaring that legit businesses don't deserve to make money... This is America after all, God-damnit.

Unfortunately, what is legit and what is moral in this country is not always mutually inclusive.
