An editorial in the Philadelphia Inquirer asserts that public plan is the best option for controlling costs and increasing coverage:
The most assured means of tamping down costs while providing greater access to health coverage could be through the government-run health plan that Obama proposes as a new option. Private insurers so far oppose that idea, but congressional proposals being developed would level the playing field between the public and private health plans. That's a good approach.
Is a public plan option the best way to control cost and increase access?
