  •  I would bail on my for profit in a heartbeat (0+ / 0-)

    if a decent public option were made available to any who wanted it.  Only if the public option is limited to enrolling only those currently uninsured, underinsured or uninsurable would the for-profits be entirely protected.  I would not support such a public option.

    If a public option plan is allowed to compete freely, without legislated handicapping, it would quickly crimp the profits of commercial insurers.  This is why they are fighting an unfettered public option plan so hard, and why congressional recipients of their largess are so eager to limit the public option in so many ways.

    I would still prefer a single payer system, and will work hard to kill any crippled public option plan which might make transitioning to single payer system in the future more difficult.  But if a decent public option plan were to somehow make it through congress I'd be happy to sign on!
