Quotes-start.png "Even a cursory look at reform plans confirms they would badly undercut private coverage – coverage most Americans say they are satisfied with. Consider the much-debated government-sponsored “public option” for insurance coverage that Pelosi demands must be a part of any overhaul. It would allow companies to obtain government-subsidized health coverage at a cost now set at 8 percent of their payroll. This is much less than the current average of 12 percent to 14 percent and thus provides a huge incentive for employers to scrap their present coverage for a government plan of uncertain quality."
