I've read all of the responses to Sen. Orrin Hatch's free-market approach to health care ("Obamacare threatens Utah families' futures," Opinion, Feb. 5). The most important item has been overlooked: Follow the money.

The top five contributors to Sen. Hatch are Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cerberus Capital Mgmt., Herbalife Int., Pfizer Inc. and Aflac Inc.

The top five contributing industries are pharmaceuticals/health products, securities & investments, lawyers/law firms, insurance and health professionals.

All of this data is available on opensecrets.org/politicians. Is there any doubt?
