„I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.“

Speech to Chamber of Commerce in Nashua, New Hampshire, , quoted in
2012
Контексте: I want individuals to have their own insurance. That means the insurance company will have an incentive to keep you healthy. It also means if you don't like what they do, you can fire them. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me. You know, if someone doesn't give me a good service that I need, I want to say I'm going to go get someone else to provide that service to me.
