Rachel shows that the Health Care industry, the folks making a fortune of you getting sick, is jubilant that Obama is considering getting rid of the “public option” in health care reform. The “public option” would allow you to get insurance through the government, and provide competition for the health care industry. One of the jubilant parties in the health care industry is United Healthcare – my own health insurance through work. Their stock went up considerably at the news that Obama’s health care plans are being crippled.
I want a public option for health insurance. I would immediately take it.
