A) The government can't run it right. (Long lines, other countries with public health care suck.)
B) The government can run it right. (The government will put private corporations out of business.)
If A) is true, then everyone with private health care won't be harmed, since their plan will be better than the government option. So if you can pay for a private option, you will get better care, but if you can't you will at least have the safety net of the government.
If B) is true, then private corporations are doing something wrong to begin with, and the people have been putting up with their horrible practices for too long as it is.
