Kathleen Sebelius Pt. 1 | The Daily Show | Comedy Central

http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/we...sebelius-pt--2

Interesting interview. She admitted that the goverment plan is not guaranteed to be cheaper than the private sector plan. I thought that was the reason why this plan was being done.

Its maddening that Stewart has to be the guy to actually ask some pertinent questions, particularly on what benefit, if any, the middle class would get from the plan. Where are the journalists? It would nice to see a thorough interview with her on the plan on a major news network and not the 30 second soundbites they currently employ.

Also it was pointed out that an individual doesn't have as much choice as you think. If your employer choices to stay private, you can't opt into public plan and vice versa.
