Public Option - the Insurance companies don't like competition

In case it has escaped you, there is a debate going on about the public option. Depending on who you listen to, a public insurance option will either kill you or solve all our problems. The truth, of course, lies somewhere in the middle of these two extremes.

The insurance companies, or at least Blue Cross Blue Shield have not been shy voicing their opinion. They don't like it. Which means, in part, that they don't like competion. To make their point they are spend lots of money. One small expense incurred by BCBS has been brought to my attention by a friend. He received a note card to sign along with a pre-paid envelope to send this note to his senator. He altered it a bit before sending it:

Nice going!

What about you, how are you voicing your opinion? Let me know in the comments.
