Hey! The latest Madville Times poll (see upper right sidebar!) is toodling along nicely. I'd like to know what you think of the "public option": do you want health care reform legislation to include a government-operated health insurance plan offered on the market alongside private insurance plans? I'm not asking if you want government to take over health care or health insurance (though I will gladly argue that we'd save lives and save money if we did). The public option, as constructed in H.R. 3200, simply means you could get insurance from your boss, buy a policy from DakotaCare or Blue Cross, or buy into a version of Medicare from Uncle Sam.
Poll closes tomorrow morning before breakfast, so vote soon!
