President Barack Obama’s speech last week to a joint session of Congress brought the debate over health care reform back to the forefront of public discussion.
One of the sticking points is the issue of whether or not a public health insurance option, a la Medicare, should be part of the reform effort. Supporters says that it will keep insurance companies honest and help lower insurance costs, while opponents feel that it will just create an even larger government bureaucracy and have a deleterious effect on health care in the United States.
Where do you stand?
