The "arguments" of a "public option" needs to change from how good or bad the pubic option will be to "Why" do we need a public option when we
have a perfectly good "Federal Employee Insurance" program.
We pay taxes to support Federal jobs AND their benefit plans... Why don't WE get the option of the same plan at the same cost as Federal
Why are we getting the (real or perceived) sub-standard "public option"?
We Need insurance reform but we don't need a sub-standard public option.
Demand the same coverage as our Federal Employees!!!!!
You pay taxes, why should YOU get stuck with something sub-standard?
If the public option is so good, why did congress vote to be EXEMPT from it and stay with the Federal Employee plan?
You know why... Demand Better! Demand Equality!
We pay the taxes, we support the Federal Jobs, We should have access to the Federal Insurance Plan at the same cost!
I do not believe the public option can be good if our leaders who are trying to push it on us are exempt and stick with their current plans (that we
pay for but cannot have ourselves... screw that, we should all have this plan at the SAME cost as our Federal employees).
