A Federalist Public Option?

I'd be all for it:
If a public plan were run by the states and available only to those who lack affordable private options, support for it jumps to 76 percent. Under those circumstances, even a majority of Republicans, 56 percent, would be in favor of it, about double their level of support without such a limitation.
And if it turns out to be the more fiscally responsible plan, then even better.
