THE GOP VS BUSINESS:

Cigna CEO: Don't repeal U.S. health law (Susan Heavey, Nov 9, 2010, Reuters)

Repealing the new U.S. healthcare law would be a waste of time, but there is room to improve it, the chief executive of health insurer Cigna Corp (CI.N) said on Tuesday.

"I don't think it's in our society's best interest to expend energy in repealing the law," David Cordani told the Reuters Health Summit in New York. "Our country expended over a year of sweat equity around the formation of it." [...]

Still, Cordani said there is room to do more to further contain the United States' spiraling healthcare costs, such as expanding more consumer-directed options like health savings accounts and improving the nation's payment system.

Such changes should not be partisan, however, he said.
