Let me get this straight. The private insurance industry favors a government program that would purchase more private insurance for people, but is opposed to anything that would drive down the cost of insurance or guarantee coverage for people the insurance industry doesn't want to cover. That's quite a plan. Why not just ask for grocery sacks full of unmarked bills instead?As an ER doc, I'm willing to go along with most anything that would get those 46 million Americans covered. As a taxpayer, I am reasonably sure there is a better, cheaper way to do it.
