once a runner wrote:So what's wrong with the way the post office is run? First of all, they provide more services than the private companies (FedEx and UPS). The USPS delivers mail to every household in America 6 days a week. Who else are you going to pay $0.42 to take a card or letter across the country for you? If anything is killing the post office it's technology. People send emails and faxes and even e-cards where they used to send actual mail.

If private insurance is so wonderful and government run programs are so bad, then it seems that private insurance shouldn't have anything to worry about. However, they seem to be fighting awfully hard to kill Obama's health care initiative. It's hard to imagine why they would spend so much money and fight so hard if they don't feel threatened.



Paragraph 1
The post office subs out work to Fed Ex enough said on that one.

Paragraph 2
Well if you were to be run out of business I am sure you would fight for your business as well. Oh wait you are a liberal and unfortunately you would blame the loss on Bush and want bailed out by the taxpayers.

Why would a private company be afraid of competing with the government? From what you say the government is incompetent and cannot possibly provide the same quality service as a private company. The public option is for those who are currently not enrolled in health care or not covered adequately from private insurance. Are the private companies afraid of a little competition? I guess the answer to that question is pretty obvious.

Oh boy you are clueless. The government can change the rules, print money, and doesn't have to make a profit.

I have the same reply to Goodwill and abp......so what? Why are you opposed to having a government option and giving he consumers another choice? If the government can do it better and cheaper isn't that good for the large majority of Americans? According to you guys the government is incompetent and inefficient so I don't understand why you feel the private insurance companies are in jeopardy. When you mail a package do you go to the place that gives you the lowest cost and best service or do you take into account how much they pay in corporate taxes?

The goal of the private insurance companies is to make as much money as they can for their CEO (usually well into the millions per year) and their shareholders. The only way they can continue to do that is by reducing the insured's benefits and raising the cost of benefits (usually a double digit percent increase). How long is that going to be sustainable? People and businesses have to deal with huge increases every year. If the government provides a non-profit alternative, how can that be bad for the American consumers?

Isn't that the COOP option OAR? Does this mean you support COOP's over Socialized Medicine?
