The hard-left Democrats pushing the Health Care Bill are swearing up and down that the Public Option has been removed so that they can bring in the last few votes of "moderate" Democrats.
The latest lie is that they will use government guided non-profit groups.
The Public Option is the whole point of the bill. The Public Option is the reason for pushing the health care legislation. The goal is to destroy the private industry, and replace it with a single-payer system that will place the government in control of all health services.
Sebelius said so only a couple years ago:
And think about this: Those of you lefties out there that don't have a problem with government controlling things because you trust the current group of Democrats, what happens when the next group comes in, and they turn out to be tyrants? You are handing future regimes that will practice tyranny your liberty on a silver platter. As for me, the government can take a hike. I would rather make those decisions for myself.
