    the public option should be to allow the uninsured to buy into Medicare. they could buy into private insurance as well, but here is the math. the president says that we need $40 billion per year to take care of the uninsured. with 50 million uninsured that would mean they would have to come up with about $800 per year to pay for their premiums in Medicare. If that were the plan, it would be revenue neutral.
