Congress Amputates Health Care Competition

One of the bogus claims of the Obama administration, is that a public option will somehow provide more "competition". I don't know that I've heard anyone comment on the fact that the Federal Government would be, in essence, selling their brand of insurance across state lines.

Aside from the fact that the government regulates the rest of the competition and is not encumbered by the need to make a profit and can print and lend itself as much money as it needs to cover its expenses, there is the additional unfair advantage of not being prohibited from offering its product across state lines.

But then, fairness was never the objective, was it?
