I do support universal health care, but we can see how unweildly the Affordable Care Act is turning out to be and how much money the insurance companies stand to make. It would be best to have one public option as many nations do. One can always pay for extra care, but the basics are provided in a very simple way.
No, the public option is not the best way to handle universal health care, because monopolies are inherently inefficient. The government can hardly handle the Department of Motor Vehicles, they should not be trusted with matters of life and death. The government will not work hard to develop new products. They will not pay doctors enough for their work.
