Having a negative health care experience does not mean you know anything about reforming health care or health insurance.  If I get run over by a car with bad brakes, does that mean I know how rebuild a car?

Oh yeah, and if those with bad/no health insurance should be for a public option because it is in their personal interest, why shouldn't those with good health insurance be against reform in their own personal interest?  At what income level does it self-interest shift from a moral good to an unforgivable evil?  I need to know.  As a graduate student, I have pretty good health care, but minimal income; and I would hate to take up an unforgivably evil position in my own self-interest.
