If the intention of creating a 'public option' in the Health Security Act of 2009 was to provide competition for the insurance industry, then Congress has already failed. The CBO numbers have come out, and apparently they estimate that only 2% of Americans under 65 would benefit from the current PO plan being forwarded by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. However, I believe those numbers reflect a greatly weakened 'public option' that no longer represents the original intention described by Democrat politicians and liberal political pundits.
