IMO, any HC reform without a public option would not provide enough cost savings to the consumer as we would still be paying the high profits of the HC providers. Profit must be removed from the equation & that is the fundamental thing that's ruining the current system & will make any reforms that still require consumers paying profits meaningless.
In my mind, those aspects of medical care separately and even more so in concert, trump cost as a deciding factor.
I note a difference between the terms we are using: You use “health care” and I use “medical care.”
Perhaps we are talking about two different things?
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
I think we are talking about the same thing. Whatever you call it, I'd like to see all citizens be able to afford the same type of medical coverage that Sen. John McCain has enjoyed all his life.......A government option.

You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.
