Headline: Fear of Losing Private Health Insurance Trumps ‘Public Option’

Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters nationwide say guaranteeing that no one is forced to change their health insurance coverage is a higher priority than giving consumers the choice of a “public option” health insurance company.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 29% take the opposite view.

But that’s not the really important number, nor is it the important question. I wouldn’t put it past Congressional Democrats to slip something into whatever thousand-page health care bill they pass — a bill few of them are likely to read — that will “force” citizens to change their coverage.

I doubt that they’d do it. Certainly, they’ll deny it until their faces are blue. But I won’t put it past them.

But the question really isn’t whether ObamaCare will force citizens outright to change their coverage. It’s whether the “public option” will incentivize employers to drop private coverage in favor of government care.

And:

Currently, 53% of insured voters say it’s likely they would have to change their health insurance coverage if the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats becomes law.

That’s the right question, and people get it.
