McCain: I’m not in favor of a public option
Sen. John McCain told CNN’s John King that he’s not in favor of a public health insurance option because he believes it would lead to a government takeover of health care. “[Public option proposals] remind us all of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. So I’ve not seen a public option that meets the test of what would not eventually lead to a government takeover,” said McCain.
