Health Care Debate: Will Public Option Die?

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, went further saying on "This Week" that he thinks that Democratic lawmakers intend to force individuals out of their current insurance plans and into a government-sponsored network where they cannot choose their own doctor.

"Everything the Democrats are doing is pushing towards what is called a single payer system where the government basically controls everything," Hatch said. "Don't think for a minute that that will not destroy the current insurance system."

But while the Obama team was changing its stance, Tom Daschle, the former leader of Senate Democrats, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that opponents of health care reform are deliberately misleading people.

"It's hyperbolic. It's fear mongering. It's actually politics at its worst," Daschle said. "It's the kind of thing that generates the kind of anger and fear and anxiety that people have today."
