Don't be fooled by the health care 'co-op' tags

It's just another way to hide the loathesome "public option" provision of Obamacare.


"If by health care 'co-op,' Congress means allowing private associations to collectively buy health insurance for their members or operate a health insurance exchange, or allowing people to buy health insurance from a non-profit, member-owned private insurer, then those would be positive, pro-consumer developments.

However, simply slapping the word 'cooperative' onto a new 'insurer,' but then specifying that the government — not the policyholders — picks the board of directors (as Sen. Schumer wants), or that taxpayers will subsidize it, or that it has to pay doctors and hospitals at Medicare rates, would just be an exercise in trying to disguise a 'public plan.' "
This is just another attempt at "progressive" smoke and mirrors, put forth in an effort to keep you poor and stupid when it comes to "health care reform" in the Obamanation.
