Chuck Schumer Guarantees a “Public Option” Will be Part of Healthcare Reform

July 6, 2009

  Yesterday on “Face the Nation” Chuck Schumer guaranteed that there would be a “public option” included in the healthcare reform bill. That is no surprise, as the whole intent of the healthcare reform bill is to eventually have the government running the healthcare industry as they slowly begin to strange the life out of private insurance companies but I found Chuck Schumer’s comment a frank admission of how this Democrat majority sees private industry.

We want it to be a fair level playing field, but you need something to keep the big boys honest. And the only thing that really is out there is a public option. We don’t trust the private insurance companies left to their own devices, and neither do the American people

  “We don’t trust the private insurance companies left to their own devices.”   That sentence right there shows us exactly how the big government politicians feel about private businesses, they don’t trust them.

  Finally one of them came out and admitted it.

    Yes, and the public option will be the only option.

    I can understand Shumer’s distrust of the health insurance companies, but I don’t believe the answer is having the government compete with them. First, if the government gets into business, who regulates the IT? Additionally, if companies were able to practice under the same guidelines across state borders, this would increase competition, and make it more affordable, without added government meddling.

      I guess that we are supposed to regulate the government at the polls. We see how well that has worked lately.
