President Obama – Public option health plan tool to discipline insurance companies

Excerpt from today’s press conference where President Obama describes how a public plan option is critical to provide a quality alternative and control costs in health reform. He asks if insurance companies are so sure they are providing the best coverage at the lowest cost then why are they scared to compete – – “that’s not logical.”

    His logic is illogical.

    Of course a private business can not compete with a government. A private business can not compel you to give them money through the use and/or threat of violence. Private businesses do not make the rules by which the game is played.

    This idiocy of this man and his disciples is amazing.
