A Government for the People...if by people you mean Corporations

I know, I go on about it a lot, but it still feels like people think their representatives represent them, the people. And I constantly feel the need to remind people that it's simply not true. With regards to the 'public option' in the healthcare proposal:
Here's the killer sentence, spotted by Politico's Carrie Budoff Brown on Page 6 of the CBO's analysis of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "blended" House bill: "[A] public plan paying negotiated rates ... would typically have premiums that are somewhat higher [italics mine] than the average premiums for the private plans in the exchanges."
Seriously, it's so obvious who they represent, isn't it?
