U.S. Health Industry to Fight Public Insurance Option in Reform Proposals

Perhaps no idea is more disliked by the U.S. health insurance industry than a proposal by Democratic President-elect Barack Obama to have a public health insurance plan competing directly with them as part of his broad pledge to reform the country''s ailing health care system.

The industry is "going to fight and they're going to kick and they're going to scream," said Sam Fleet, president and chief executive officer of AmWins Group Benefits, a wholesale brokerage. "The last thing private insurers want is the federal government to compete with them."

The health insurance industry is a failed model and they know it. Time to put them out of their misery and pass single payer.

Z is right next to the shift key, so when people are typing fast, they hit the Z and Shift at the same time, creating ZOMG! Eventually, it just became snarky to do it purposefully.
