      to control a company you don't control. If you can control it, you can organize it transparently.

      Moreover, we have a real wold comparison: the VA and Medicare vs. the existing insurance companies.

      •  absolutely true (0+ / 0-)

        The government has proven adequate at running SS, Medicare, VA.  It has proven inadequate at regulating much of anything for the past three decades.
