So in a sense it is government run , they make their own deals with providers that the rest of us don't have .
This part I think I disagree. Not gov run. Gov made the deal with providers -- negotiated up/down additions/subtractions of what to cover etc. for how much, but . . .
Insurance Companies run the programs.
Obama wants what is available to groups with the numbers and power to negotiate, avalable to you too!
YES and NO , lets call it a tie
OPM runs the program the privates run their end of the program that has been approved by OPM sorta a 60-40 deal with the privates - Medicare is well 100% Gov after all ya been paying for it via payroll contributions , much like FICA which you then have to pay taxes on top of that .
One thing I liked about McCain was he understood the insane "Tax Pyramid" system we have
