One must ask why the industry fears the so-called public option. Monopolies always fear competition. Did the oil industry suffer and die when Standard Oil Co.'s monopoly was broken up?
Public option won't kill insurance industry
The industry thrived. Did the health insurance industry collapse when Medicare was enacted? Hardly. Healthy competition is the lifeblood of a healthy business. Get a grip!
