Public Option Watch: ‘Misguided And Troubling’ In Connecticut
WASHINGTON – As politicians in some state capitals discuss creating new state government-controlled health insurance systems known as the public option or state government option, there is a growing body of research and chorus of opposition warning of the unaffordable costs and consequences.
- When politicians in Connecticut introduced a proposal to create a state government option, the state’s Teamsters union strongly opposed the legislation.
- Calling it “a misguided and troubling attempt to create a ‘one-size’ fits all government run plan that would dramatically impact our operations and negatively impact our members’ ability to access the positive health benefit plans we have designed, maintained, and funded over the years,” the Teamsters’ message was heard by state lawmakers who chose not to advance the legislation.
