The Conservative Argument for the Public Option

Okay, let's make it simple. The public option in the current debate refers to proposals to have a single-payer national health insurance program included as an "option" in health care reform. The public option is more efficient; it has lower administrative costs; it is fair, and it is cheaper than any of the alternatives. That's right. Folks scream about Medicare, but it works and works for less than all other private insurance schemes. Makes sense. Private companies are all about profits, not service, not care, not your health and well-being. Get it? This video presents the "conservative" argument for the Public Option. It makes a clear and compelling case, don't you think? Leave me your comments.
