Agree or disagree with NY's emperor, er, I mean mayor, he does seem to stay ahead of the curve. From his op-ed in the NY Daily News:
"The public option in health care - which President Obama is supporting as a central part of his proposed reforms - grows out of the same idea. If you like the coverage you have, you keep it. But if you don't have coverage - or if you lose your coverage - you'd have another option. And virtually everyone agrees that a well-managed public option has real potential to provide - for less money - the same benefits that private insurers provide."
