ABSTRACT
The article comments on U.S. public opinion regarding health-care reform involving a government-administered health insurance plan that competes with private health insurance plans. The author notes that voters support the idea of a government health plan, but believes support will falter when the costs become clear. He claims high costs with minor benefits is not what people expect. A similar reaction occurred when former U.S. President Bill Clinton attempted health-care reform.
