Most of the current debate about national health care reform is over President Obama’s proposal to make a public plan one of the options for consumers.
That doesn’t sit too well with many interests in the health care-industrial complex. The right-wing pundits hate it too, and reportedly a Senator from North Carolina is holding up its consideration.
What about the American people? The June Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that 65 percent of Americans support
Creating a public health insurance option to compete with private health insurance plans
Only 29 percent oppose offering the choice of a public plan.
The American people seem pretty clear about what they want. The question of course, is will the politicians listen to them or the battalion of lobbyists from the health care industry?
