The question is, will that number grow, will the salience rise, and will repeal become an inexorable political dynamic?
It will if I can help it.
"God Bless Our Troops in Harms Way."
There is no Insurance company in the entire world that will permit a Policy to be sold without controlling the eventual costs.
Ie: A family buys an Insurance Policy with a $2,000,000 maximum lifetime care on it.
Someone within that family has a catastrophic illness/accident, where the health costs rise above the $2,000,000 mark.
The Insurance company says sorry and refers back to the Policy which is a contract.
Under Obama's plan the above will no longer be permitted, further no one can be denied an Insurance Policy.
What Obama will have, in effect done is a Government takeover of the Healthcare Insurance Industry (as the Government will be the only body that can underwrite unlimited costs).
Thus under the Bill that has just been passed the 'Public Option' is included.
However, I doubt very much that most people will understand that.
What they will see are the various 'goodies' within the Bill, and the Democrats under their chief Obama will incessantly publicize these from now until November.
Unfortunately the majority of the electorate see the 'goodies' but are too stupid to realize that even candy comes at a price.
