Is Senator Lieberman Kidding?

I am appalled that Senator Lieberman has announced his opposition to a public plan in health care reform. Can he really believe a PUBLIC option can’t be afforded after our experience with Medicare and Medicare private plans! As Medicare has shown, private plans are what we can’t afford.   Study after study shows that Medicare, our only experience with a national health insurance, is spending about 14% more in private plans than it would pay for the same care in the traditional, public Medicare program.  The extra payments to private Medicare plans equal about $15 billion a year!  Come on – if we really are worrying about cost, a public plan is what we CAN afford. It’s private insurance that’s killing Medicare and that will bankrupt health care “reform”.
