It’s difficult to understand how the Republican Party can oppose the Obama Administration’s proposal to provide health insurance for all American citizens. In my opinion, each person in this country needs and deserves quality health care. The lack of healthcare for all too many folks has reached crisis levels in all parts of the U.S. Having the choice of a public health insurance option would make all of our lives better and certainly is needed by those who have no health insurance coverage. The following are compelling reasons for supporting the President’s efforts:
• Health care costs are spiraling out of control. From 2000 to 2008, health insurance premiums increased five times faster than wages.
• A public health insurance option would provide an affordable, quality alternative. Two new studies show that Americans could save 25% or more off of a traditional private plan. The New York Times says this would “keep the private plans honest.” They’ll have to lower rates and offer better value to compete.
• Plus, a public health insurance option would be reliable coverage for all. Private insurers are notorious for dumping people with little notice. A public option would allow consumers who’ve been dropped—or just don’t like their current coverage—to switch to a steady public choice.
It appears that the public health insurance option is gaining ground in Congress. The Progressive Caucus recently endorsed the policy. And the chairmen of five critical Congressional committees came out in support. If you agree with President Obama let your Representatives and Senators know how you feel.
