Apparently, Republicans are fearful of a government run medical insurance scheme as it would undermine private companies ability to compete. Having lectured the public on the benefits of privatized medical care, they are now accepting that this is complete bull shit, and government can provide better quality at a lower cost.
The only logical conclusion to this revelation is that the Republicans have never been interested in serving the public with quality, affordable health care, only in serving the needs of the giant pharmaceutical companies that pay for their campaigns.
