No Level Playing Field For Public Option

The August 27, 2009 DC Examiner explains the "Four reasons there's no level playing field for the public option".

Key points include:
(1) Reimbursement of Providers
(2) A start-up infusion of cash
(3) State Premium Taxes
(4) Coverage Requirements
A government plan that competes against private companies in such an unfair fashion is no better than a Mafia-run grocery store that uses arson and beatings to "out-compete" honest storekeepers.
