    A public option would need to have deductibles as well to control health care usage.  It has absolutely nothing to do with for profit or not for profit.

      to encourage people not to use the system.

      That's just shitty.  I'm done with discussion with you on this topic.

      Reconsider that behavior.  You are among Progressives here :)

        that is the real world.   When species being is achieved health care rationing will wither away, until then - happy talk is going to help anything.

          primary care insurance I would agree with you.

          Applying that to a for profit model is way too pro-corporate to me.  There is no reason anybody should profit from our suffering like that.

          If it were me, I would make for-profit primary care insurance illegal.

          Let them add value on top of the basic human need and profit from that.  All good.
