Switzerland provides universal health care for its citizens without a public option.  A very attractive facet of this care that allows the program feasibility is that the insurance companies do not make obscene profits and pharmaceuticals are regulated.

It is time to divert the burden from the taxpayers of the United States to insurance companies where executives make an incredible salary at the expense of the public.

Perhaps it is time to require insurance companies to accept all people interested in enrolling while eliminating pre-existing condition restrictions and not raising premiums to outrageous rates.
