Improving Competition through a Public Option
I believe a robust public option needs to be part of health care reform. Currently, there is little competition in the health insurance industry. In fact two insurance companies, and sometimes a single company, can dominate the marketplace in most communities. Allowing people to choose between a public option and a range of private insurance companies would improve competition, resulting in better coverage for a better price. I support a public option that is accountable to the people and available nationwide. If such an option is not included in draft legislation, I will work to add one to any health reform bill before the Finance Committee or on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
