This hour, we speak with Connecticut Comptroller Kevin Lembo on his public option proposal to give more people the chance to join a health insurance program overseen by the state.

The Connecticut Partnership Plan is already offered to municipal workers and school employees. 

But how would he pay for it?

And how would he avoid frightening away insurance companies that are big employers in the state?

Guests:

  • Connecticut Comptroller Kevin Lembo
  • Kaiser Health News Senior Correspondent Mary Agnes Carey

We want to hear from you.
