    This is so wrong in so many ways.  These "executives" will live lavish lives off of the suffering of America's injured, sick, and dying people.


    Tracking the pay of Minnesota’s business leaders

    Stephen Hemsley - 2012


    UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH)

    Headquarters: Minnetonka
    Business: Health insurer
    Total pay

    2012: $13.89 million, up 3.7 percent

    Base salary

    2012: $1.3 million

    2012: None

    Stock awards
    2012: $7 million
    Option awards
    2012: None

    Incentive pay
    2012: $5.3 million (because $8.3 million isn't enough, me)

    Other compensation
    2012: $287,000


    Total compensation for other highly-compensated UHC executives:

    David Wichmann, chief financial officer: $8.5 million

    Gail Boudreaux, CEO of UnitedHealthcare: $8.5 million

    Larry Renfro, CEO of Optum: $8.62 million,

    Lori Sweere, executive vice president of human capital: $4.47 million

    Anthony Welters, executive vice president: $7.41 million

    $50,000,000 pay for JUST these 5 United Health Care executives.

    Is this correct?  If there are 300,000,000 people in USA, each of us, every man, woman, and child would contribute $6 a year to pay these 5 executives.

    Talk about wealth transfer....

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
