22. If it doesn't have a Public Option it is not reform


It will not give us a structural change or a path to single payer.


It will however mandate by law that you purchase private insurance. It will give Health Care Insurers, who are currently mounting what in effect is a criminal enterprise (entering into contracts with the intend to defraud by disallowing payment to people with large claims on trivial grounds).

So no we are not going to sit by and let them steal health care reform. If they won't give us Public Option then we come back in the next election and inform and win at the ballot box.
