    I think this is a great idea.
    Would you force your family onto anything that you wouldn't do yourself?
    What is good enough for us IS good enough for them!

    Quote from article:
    Dodd, along with Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Barbara Mikulski of Maryland, joined Republican Sens. David Vitter of Louisiana, Richard Burr of North Carolina and Orrin Hatch of Utah in publicly supporting the amendment.

    i dont get it, congress is not trying to create a one-payer system. thats what the word "option" means, choices. how is this sarcastic bill just proposed intend to make congress enroll in multiple health care plans?

    I really don't understand the point of this either. I mean, I have no intention of being on the government plan. I don't want them to be forced on the public option because then the public option will be a cadillac that will be uber expensive.

    Take It from a Canadian: You Don?t Want the Public Option

    Personally I don't think the public option means a public option only, maybe at first.
    Obama has stated in the past that he wants a government run health care system no matter how long it takes to accomplish it.
    I heard at least this part of a speech he gave quite a few years ago.
    There is no doubt that this is the first step to socializing healthcare.
    C'mon people, you may be fined and go to jail if you don't participate!

    Obama falsely denied endorsing single-payer government health insurance when he first ran for the Senate, saying, "I never said that we should try to go ahead and get single-payer." But in fact he gave a speech in 2003 saying, "I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care program."
