  •  Medicare IS a public option. (0+ / 0-)

    Or at least that's how I've always seen it.  The public option was always seen as a government run health insurance system.  That's exactly what Medicare is.  The only difference as I can see it is that we're determining eligibility by age when we use Medicare as the public option.  From what I've heard of the compromise so far, it even sounds like more people will be eligible for the Medicare buy in than would have been able to buy into the Senate public option.
