I don't care if we have healthcare reform as long as it is as GOOD OR BETTER than what I have today!
And I do NOT believe that the current plans are BECAUSE the same Political representatives that are pushing this have VOTED to EXEMPT themselves from
Case closed... Until they put their money where their mouth is MOST of us are not going to believe a word they say.....
The "argument" 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!
Watch this: Does this include healthcare / public option?
And how many times did we hear that "all of us should have the same healthcare coverage as congress"? Guess what, the public option sure as hell
isn't the Federal Employee Insurance Program and we all know it.
So, can I buy into the same pool that you and Senator McCain enjoy... NO
Are you going to negotiate with the drug companies.... NO, you sold out to them in exchange for them pushing your reform bill.
(Would you call these lies or broken promises?)
Buy the same kind of insurance as Federal Employees.... Again, the public option IS NOT the Federal Employee Insurance Program....
How do we know that? Because the CONGRESS VOTED TO EXEMPT themselves from the Public Option to make damned sure they didn't have to have the plan...
SO, WHY would I think the public option is going to suck?
DO you really have to ask?
