why anyone would wan't to make this or any sector public when the private sector can and does more efficiently is beyond me. I would want the government to have a hand in as little as possible.. Military and services the private sector cannot feasibly provide..
The gov't is not getting into healthcare, they're getting into healthcare insurance. And even then they're not providing it (except for medicare/medicaid), they're just trying to make it a level playing field that most people can afford. The private sector has not done so efficiently or fairly. Now whether or not the gov't can actually affect positive change in the healthcare insurance field is another discussion. I have my doubts.
