Opinion Pieces Weigh Pros, Cons of Public Insurance Plan
In a Sacramento Bee opinion piece, Micah Weinberg, a senior research fellow in the California Program of the New America Foundation, argues in favor of creating a public insurance plan that competes fairly with private plans. He writes, "A Medicare-type plan or no public plan at all is a false choice." The Bee also featured a point/counterpoint on whether health care reform should include the a public insurance plan option.
- "Everybody's Got a Stake in Reforming Health Care" (Weinberg, Sacramento Bee, 3/29).
- "Should Health Care Reform Include the Choice of a Public Insurance Plan" (Sacramento Bee, 3/29).
