Our President Incarnate explains:
People say, well, how can a private company compete against the government? And my answer is that if the private insurance companies are providing a good bargain, and if the public option has to be self-sustaining meaning taxpayers arent subsidizing it, but it has to run on charging premiums and providing good services and a good network of doctors, just like any other private insurer would do then I think private insurers should be able to compete. They do it all the time. I mean, if you think about it, UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? No, they are. Its the Post Office thats always having problems.
Well then, that should reassure the skeptics.
