Why are Americans not allowed a Public Option?

    There are a wide variety of opinions on this matter.  Some would argue that creating a public option is a step closer to “socialism”, and would bog up our already inefficiency riddled health care system.  They cite queue numbers in Europe and Canada to back this up.  I have participated in both the US and British health care systems, and I have to say, the British, public option, system presented no inefficiencies, no waits, and most importantly, no cost.  It’s my opinion that corporate HMOs with powerful lobbies have a great deal of vested interest in keeping our country’s federal government out of providing health care for its citizens.  The public option is threatening, considering how expensive most health care and insurance plans are.  If you could be insured for free, why bother paying hundreds of dollars a month on something like health insurance?
