California Health-care solution

Since many conservative politicians oppose universal health care because they feel it takes away patients’ right to choose where to get their health insurance, wouldn’t it make sense for the government to adopt a system that promotes public-private competition?

In his book The Conscience of a Liberal, Paul Krugman, opinion columnist for The New York Times and economic teacher at Princeton University, advocates for a health-care system that gives people the choice to either buy into a Medicare-type government insurance plan or stick with their private insurance companies.

Wouldn’t this be a logical compromise that could be made between conservatives and liberals?

It would provide health care to all Americans without taking away a person’s right to choose where to get their health insurance.

Health care reform plans similar to the one envisioned by Krugman have been proposed at the national level by Sen. Barack Obama and at the state level by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
