4. There is 100% certainty that it would be less than what private insurance cos charge

For example, two people ages 57 and 59 pay about $6000 a year in premiums plus an $11,000 deductible.

I am absolutely certain that a non-subsidized public option would cost less than that -- probably less than 2/3 of that cost.
