Would that be a bad thing? Would your health care be worse off without insurance company bureaucracy rationing medical care, if you were provided with health care through a government plan?
Republicans like Senator Grassley are constantly telling us that the government is incapable of providing services as efficiently and affordably as private businesses. If that’s really true, why would a government public option for health care coverage “force private insurers out of business”? Wouldn’t insurance companies, if they’re as capable as Republicans think they are, outcompete the public option?
