Want government option

I really am grateful that The Signal enables common folk the opportunity to voice opinions that some representatives of the government seem not to pay attention to.

Regarding the current state of affairs in the health care system it seems to me that the for-profit system is being asked to reduce their profit.

The tactics the insurers and allied businesses (all working for profiting Wall Street) are using to change our minds is the old-time scare tactics and disruption of meetings that provide the public information about alternates to the for-profit system.

I look at other countries' health care systems and see the universality of our military health care system and think if government-run systems are so bad, why aren't they replaced by for-profit options?

I imagine if they were replaced they would end up like the Haliburton debacle where the company did provide gold service at a hefty price and with questionable results.

No, thank you. Most of the people I know would love to have a government option available.
