In response to "Docs in favor of public option in reform bill: study":
“Docs in favor of public option in reform bill” is a very slick line that is clearly attempting to skew the truth. Agreeing that more persons age 55 and above be permitted to be covered via Medicare is much different than the idea that “docs” favor a takeover of the healthcare system by the government in offering a government option to compete in the free market. Very slick indeed!
