All according to PLAN… & only the first step towards SINGLE PAYER.
The “drama”, the bogus articles about “infighting” & the “Presidents reluctance to support the Public Option” (all to eagerly parroted on this site).. the nonsense about “triggers” was simply political brinkmanship by MASTERS.
Those States that are STUPID enough to “opt out” will have to explain to their constituents WHY they can’t CHOOSE for themselves.. & the party responsible for it will seal themselves into their OWN TOMBS.
The HOUSE is now pushing (& will GET) an accelerated schedule so as to make provisions like the elimination of “pre-existing conditions” & the health insurance industry’s anti-trust exemptions as soon as early NEXT YEAR.
Coupled with the “Opt-OUT” clause, States who decide to choose against the Public Option can ALSO choose against PRIVATE INSURERS as well & set up a STATE-WIDE “Single Payer” system.
Imagine.. people living in California adopting SINGLE PAYER as soon as next year!!!
Their ECONOMY will SKYROCKET, as businesses no long FETTERED by the burden of covering their employees will be able to GROW & start to recreate our middle class.
