The only decent thing to do with health care is do what is best for the people; create a public option that mirrors Medicare to work alongside the private insurance options. Nothing less is acceptable and anyone who opposes a public plan cares nothing for the well-being of the American people. A Medicare-like public option is what the people want, what most physicians and nurses want. It is time to put into place what the rest of the developed world has had for decades: a public plan that actually works to ensure the well-being of the people. The U.S. must do away with a for-profit health industry and replace it with a for-health system.
