Jay remember in poll after poll the majority of americans favor a public option. Your opinion does note represent the majority view in this country in any way

Personally due to the anti-trust laws and how the insurance companies operate now the idea the idea that there is any choice now is a bit off. In fact the vast majority of americans really can't afford any choice but what the job offers anyway.

Choice simply does not exist now except for the well employed, young, healthy people in the US

If we don't fix it somehow we will be a third world country as medicare and rising premiums break the bank of the government and individuals.

Last I saw from the CBO, the senate plan would actually save us money, 30 billion over 10 years on the federal defecit compared to doing nothing.
