Will you get on the public plan when it passes? We all know we support, or oppose the bill, so let's keep that to a minimum.
Depends on my situation at the time. I would not actively switch to it, but if I need insurance, then yes.
But if it does, I will probably participate in the public option. I currently have an individual plan that I do not trust at all. I'm absolutely convinced that if I had a serious illness, the insurance company would do everything they could to find an excuse not to pay, kick me off the plan, or raise my rates to unaffordable prices.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

C. Don't know.
Bill has not passed. Would like more information about public option if and when bill passes.
By the way, when making polls, it is usually a good idea to have an "other" option, or an "I don't know" option. I could not vote, since for me it is situational.
I currently do not have health insurance of any sort.
I am a younger person (20-30 range) who is less likely to need health insurance.
So I chose not to acquire any.
This may or may not be a good idea.
If I decide to get health coverage, I would prefer a plan which only covered unforeseen problems, and then only over a set amount.
For example, if any of my medical issues would cost me over, say, $500, my insurance plan would cover them.
However, I do not have any idea where I could acquire such a plan.
In regards to a potential public plan, I'm really not sure what I would do.
I personally am currently opposed to it, based on second or third-hand information.
As a result of this, I would be inclined to avoid it on basic principle, but that could change.
Further, I do not think a bill containing a "public health insurance" plan would pass through congress.
There is simply too much opposition to it.
