8. About half the US population is covered by employer-based health insurance

Though far from perfect, these policies for the most part provide good health care.

Tens of millions of voters would be very hesitant to have that coverage taken away, to be replaced with a new Medicare for All system. The rightwing Fear and Propaganda factory would go into overdrive, which could have a very negative affect for Democrats in the 2010.

The reason for the "Public Option" as a first step is entirely political, deemed necessary (by many who advocate it) for winning the election.
