Thank you Alan Grayson

“The government spent billions of dollars creating a Medicare network of providers that is only open to one-eighth of the population. That’s like saying, ‘Only people 65 and over can use federal highways.’ It is a waste of a very valuable resource and it is not fair. This idea is simple, it makes sense, and it deserves an up-or-down vote.”

~ Congressman Alan Grayson

Today Congressman Alan Grayson introduced the Public Option Act, that would allow all Americans to buy into Medicare at cost. The bill is 4 pages long and lets any American choose an unsubsidized Medicare option over private insurance. The bill requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to establish enrollment periods, coverage guidelines, and premiums. Because premiums would be equal to cost, the program would pay for itself.
