Without A Public Option

-- by Dave Johnson

Congress is getting ready to pass a law requiring all of us to cough up big money to buy health insurance from the big insurance companies.

Never mind that most people want a real national health care system, instead we get a requirement that we give even more money to big corporations who give little back. The idea of a "public option" that lets us at least buy into Medicare was proposed to help offset this. But that wouldn't have us all ordered by law to cough up big money to the insurance companies, so it looks like that option is going away.

This reminds me of a few years ago when Congress made it illegal to sue fast food companies that harm their customers.

This is a disgrace we should all be able to have the choice!
