There are those that say the public plan in the health care reform bill is critical in order for there to be any kind of “effective” reform. This would be a good solution (on the surface) for the millions of people who don’t have access to health care currently.
If you look at both sides of this debate, you’ll see that each side has a point, but they can’t seem to agree on implementation or on target groups and who should benefit the most – all or just portions of the population. Both sides have good points to make. Getting lost in the kerfuffle is the basic question of how Medicaid may be made stronger, rather than aiming at those in poverty and with no access to health care.
