If Private Health Insurance Is So Awesome, Why Would It Lose a Competition With Gov't Health Care? | OurFuture.org:

Or does this little-talked-about hypocrisy in the Republicans' argument expose a brazen corruption? Does it show that conservatives are totally bought off by the private health insurance industry that Americans despise?
