Majority of NC favors Public Option

One reason Blue Cross is fighting so hard against real health reform – especially a public health plan option that might give it some competition – is fear that change is coming. Why is change likely to happen? Well, according to the latest Elon University poll [1], 54% of North Carolinians support a public option health plan. And people must be fed up with Blue – 41% say they would choose to join the public plan if it were available to them.
