Oh my – more reading! This is the newest idea being floated by the Administration. The reform legislation would only include a public option IF after ‘several’ years the insurance industry does not implement changes that the ‘powers to be’ decide is best for us. You know this piece of legislation is going to take forever to get through reading this time. There’s going to have to be so many holes available for the public option they’re going to need 2,000 pages on this one!
This is the Democrats way of “getting the camels nose under the tent”. They must find a way to at least mention the public option in the bill and then later they will find a way to implement the option by Amendment, etc. – or in this case when the insurance/health industries do not do as told. Lord knows they’re going to make sure the ‘trigger’ will be released, on way or another.
They just don’t get it. WE don’t want a public option – we want health care reform that includes tort reform. Crap, sorry I forgot, they don’t care what we want.
