Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini

“We had ten CEOs and 14 Congressional legislators at a dinner. I told the group that Aetna was not “my” company but that I was a steward of the company for the shareholders. I then said to the legislators this isn’t your Congress. You are stewards of the American dream. They said,  as a CEO what you say goes. We don’t have that power. Unless we get in line with the polarity of the party, we won’t get elected.”
