  •  Yes, I thought it would be obvious that that is (0+ / 0-)

    what I meant. The OP was suggesting that a "single payer" "public option" could exist alongside of the hundreds of insurance plans. My argument is basically that

    "public option" was a creation of the insurance companies who see single payer (and nationalized healthcare - although they might make a lot of money on that during the conversion)

    They invented public option to allow them to get single payer out of the public eye.. They see that as the only real threat.

    Public option does keep the public interest optional because the private insurance companies preservation is absolutely its highest priority.

    If you think about it, without that, there is not a single reason to not switch. Everything is better and its FAR cheaper.

    We could save ONE HALF of the money we spend on health care now, thats money that would then go to care.

    They are trying to prop healthcare costs up, NOT lower them.
