Richard Eskow: Between Bezos’ libertarian politics and his extraordinary gifts in business, this could be a very good or a very bad thing. But either way, it will be something worth watching.
I do find it amusing, however, that the right wing wants people to trust insurance companies over government. Insurance companies have been the most incredibly grotesque example of service and loophole digging I have ever witnessed. The idea that my life would be in the hands of a company that exists solely to make profit and who hires people whose compensation is based on finding ways to deny claims, would be incredibly horrifying.
