Flying the (Not So) Friendly Skies

One of the primary reasons that we don't already have a nationalized health care system is the so-called "Public Option." For it or agin, it is a deal-breaker. Include it, and moderates and those right-of-center balk. Exclude it, and those on the left scream bloody murder. The current ploy seems to be a variation on bait-and-switch: exclude it from the bill, then add it back in during reconciliation. That, of course, has its own perils.

But would the Public Option really be all that bad? Isn't it possible to have "a little bit o'gummint" in the game, to keep the insurance carriers honest?

You be the judge:
