    that profit and overhead by insurance companies adds between 20-30 percent to the cost of providing health care.  Of course there are still costs associated with providing health care, but the profit part of the equation os removed.  If I'm not correct in this assumption then obviously the logic fails.  

    I'm certainly open to other theories.  I was just positing the idea that Obama has in the past used a kind of jujitsu tactic of seeming to surrender to an opponent's force, and then turning that same force against the opponent.

    So in appearing to "agree" to discuss changes to Obamacare, he could actually improve it by putting in the public option.
