Katrina Vanden Heuvel:
"Competition is at the heart of America. To deny Americans competition by denying them the option of a public plan seems to me to be un-American."
Congressman Paul Ryan:
"What's weird about that line right there, Katrina, is that I know you and others are very much in favor of a single-payer plan, which is obviously to deny competition and have the government run it all. What's concerning about this debate with me is that you're using capitalist rhetoric to try and move a plan that is inherently anti-market.
The problem is that the facts tell us this: A public plan option quickly becomes a government-run monopoly. The actuaries are telling us is that in a few short years, the public plan option displaces the private sector, employers dump their employees on the public plan, and then they have no choices but the public plan.
And so, let's not try to sell a government-run plan using free market rhetoric. Let's have an honest debate about what this bill is all about."
