USA Today - Orrin Hatch

Americans want health care reform that reduces costs and provides affordable access. But they also worry about preserving quality, improving a struggling economy and reducing the nation’s unsustainable debt. Amid this uncertainty, we should be careful not to do too much too fast, risking mistakes of lasting consequence.

It was an exercise driven by politics and an arrogance of power rather than responsible policies and transparency.
