36. I'm not sure that a public option will end up with Just the sickest.
There are millions of young college students and grads who right now do not have health insurance because they can't afford it. They are a good pool of people to have included. Especially if the public option cost very little.

My son and daughter are 2 examples. In their early twenties, graduated and soon to be graduated, they can't afford health care and their barely above minimum wage jobs do not offer health care. They are very healthy (thank God) and seldom need to see a doctor. They would be perfect patients for a public option health care program at a very low cost.
