17. As opposed to "none" currently
And they'll probably get good care for a while, until it bankrupts the providers.

You are right about the need to adequately fund a public option.

I'm not so much worried about "adequate"; I'm worried about "dedicated". If it is part of the general budget, it will be cut, and we all know that.

Medicaid can only pay as little as it does because providers are recouping their losses by taking private insurance patients. As the number of people on Medicaid goes up, that stops being true. And I don't think anybody knows what's going to happen there.
