    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!

    The insurance companies have had a choke hold on small businesses for years. What we’ve been subjected to alone is reason enough for major health care reform. 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.
