The majority specifically is in favor of a public option, Howie, not just health care reform in general.
If they aren’t in favor of it “as written”, it’s because by “as written” you refer to the fact that it’s being so watered down as to be useless. Put off for years, made optional by the states, etc.
Given how the general opinion of government programs usually involves words like “bloated”, “inefficient”, “wasteful”, “bureaucratic”, etc., why do you think the insurance companies are so terrified by the idea of competition from a public option that they’re buying Republican congressmen by the handful?
