Health Care Reform is Dead

If this health care reform effort doesn’t include a public option, then we might as well call it what it is: dead.  They can call it reform all they want (and believe me they will) but with out real reform then it is not reform at all.  And without a public option it won’t be real reform.

The New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall St Journal have all run articles recently saying that Obama may let the public option die.  That, to me, would be the death of real health care reform.  Fortunately, some Democrats are saying that the public option is “a must.”  Hopefully they can convince others in the party that it is too.  Because if we don’t have a public option, I sure hope you like whatever health insurance you have.  And if you don’t have anything, maybe you should contact your Representatives and Senators and tell them that reform doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t help people like you.
