HR 4789: Quell the Individual Mandate with Medicare

March 26, 2010

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL): “We all know the health care bill is missing one important thing – and that’s the public option.”  The “Medicare You Can Buy Into Act,” HR 4789, currently has 80 co-sponsors.  “It’s a simple 3-and-a-half page bill that would let everyone have access to Medicare if they were willing to pay for it.”

After all the secret deals, can we overcome the Individual Mandate without a Public Option (one of the largest corporate betrayals in U.S. history, which Rep. Grayson was a part of)?  This, at least, should be a start.  The new TAX and “Criminal” weight may remain.  Yet, actual Competition and a partially acceptable Choice (while being forced) would result.
