As near as I can figure, the new ad put out by Blue Cross Blue Shield attacking the idea of a public health insurance option goes something like this:

1. Single payer health insurance will be a complete nightmare that no sane person would want, and we must do everything in our power to prevent anything that might ever lead to it.

2. If health care reform includes a public option among its various choices, it will be so good that everyone will choose it over private, for-profit plans, and

3. All the insurance companies will go out of business, leaving us stuck with the horrible public option which we all chose because it was so good.

I think I must be missing something.
