VIDEO: H.R. 4789 the "Public Option Act": Medicare for any American at cost

Original by Sahil Kapur at Raw Story.

Progressive firebrand Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) isn't giving up on offering Americans a public option.... the four-page H.R. 4789 "Public Option Act," also called the "Medicare You Can Buy Into Act," would allow all legal American residents under 65 to enroll in Medicare by paying a fee....

"The government spent billions of dollars creating a Medicare network of providers that is only open to one-eighth of the population," Grayson said. "That’s like saying, ‘Only people 65 and over can use federal highways.’

He labeled insurance companies "the real death panels in this country" due to their widely-documented practices of denying care due to people with pre-existing conditions and rescinding coverage from sick patients.
