If 100 Million People Want To Join The Public Option, What's The Problem?

Sen. Grassley, the Mad Twitterer, was on with Andrea Mitchell and she asked him about the public option. She didn't bring up his tweets, unfortunately. He said that he was against the public option because a think tank study told him around a hundred and nineteen million people would opt out of private health insurance and join it.

So WTF is wrong with that? What does that say about the health care in America? If 80% of the people are satisfied with the insurance they have then why would they leave it for a public option? Simple questions need simple answers, but with people like Grassley as a Senator, you know this country is in trouble.
