Just wondering....

...about the health care debate...

How does the co-op plan being floated now as a replacement for the public option differ from Horizon/Blue Cross and other "mutual" insurance companies that have been around for decades?

From observing reports of the town hall meetings around the country, it seems that the attendees have been mostly middle class, middle aged and elderly white people who have health care coverage. Where are the reported 40-50 million people without coverage?

Why are Democrats opposed to a national health insurance market with more competition vs the state regulated market we have now?

Why are Democrats opposed to small businesses being allowed to join together to form larger groups to buy their employees health insurance?
