    Chris is right. We need competition and a strong public option will provide that. Imagine what it would cost to ship a package if you didn’t have the Post Office breathing down Fed Ex’s and UPS’s neck. Our government has a duty here!

An immediate strong public option that allows anyone to join is the least we’ll accept. The triggered option floating around is just further insult to small businesses.
