Health care reform should: REDUCE COSTS, GUARANTEE CHOICE, and ASSURE QUALITY AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE FOR ALL.
More than 2/3 of Americans support a public option, yet special interests can still derail this critical piece of healthcare reform.
A PUBLIC OPTION MUST INCLUDE:
Americans deserve the right to choose their own health- care. Congress must allow universal availability of a public health- care option like Medicare. Limiting choice to for-profit insurance only is the same broken healthcare system we have right now.
Capitalism thrives on competition. A public health-care option would bring new competition into the market driving lower prices and incentives for better service and care.
There is no need to create something new or unfamiliar to the American people. Americans already know about for-profit insurance and they know about Medicare. We need to make a public option like Medicare available to all Americans.
