I listened to various governors talking points on CSPAN this morning. The mantra is the federal government can do certain things better than the private sector. They point to social security and medicare. Last time I looked both programs were set to go bankrupt. The governmental option ( or single payer ) caries an unfair competitive edge ( no cost of capital ). This advantage will slowly push the free enterprise system out of the market. If you really looked at cost look towards government mandates.
1 If legislation is passed will the congress and first family be mandated to receive the same level of care.?
2. The government seems to think they can do a better job than the private sector. If you are so good at cost containment why are most state budgets in a deficit. ?
This will be another disaster for the country from Washington.
