Listening to the Sunday Talkies its clear, one of the biggest concerns that Republicans talk about when voicing opposition to having a public option is that IT WILL WORK TOO WELL. That so many people will chose this option that it will hurt the insurance industry.
Some refer to it as the nose under the tent flap for Single Payer.
That's right!!! They oppose a public option, not because it won't work. Not because it will cost too much. Not because the government cannot possibly efficiently deliver health insurance.
They oppose it BECAUSE IT MIGHT WORK!!!
And, oh by the way, it might actually work to hold down health care costs across the board.
How horrible would it be if the government offered its citizens something that they want and that works and that helps to reduce costs???
Whose side are they on??
Clearly not on the side of all those people they think might chose the public option.
They are on the Insurance Company's side.
We have a health care crisis in this country and the Republicans demand is that we protect the profits of the insurance companies.
