I fully support effective health reform and always have.
That being said, if legislation is passed and signed into law that the feds enforce to require everyone to be insured and do not provide a public option, then it is tantamount to federal alliance with the insurance companies!
Yes, there is language to require certain things from the companies, but there are most likely loopholes. Companies will find a way to hurt people and health providers if it means they can clear a profit.
The only effective way to get profit motivated companies to tow the line is to give them competition that is motivated by the public good.
I will not support any candidates in the upcoming elections if they vote for or approve health care "reform" that is ends up being government enforcement of furthering profits for the private sector!
