City-run vs. privately-operated
To the editor,
We have our own prime example of the effects of public options to commercial enterprise.
The city-run Sanibel Recreation Center is a terrific facility, many options for fitness and recreation. Very reasonable cost. The Sanibel Fitness Center was a privately-operated and popular “health club” that could not compete with the “public option.”
Any speculation that a public option will encourage competition and lower prices is hooey.
Oh, by the way – the cost to use the Sanibel Recreation Center has gone up.
