No, and you are missing the point of the "keep your hands off my Medicare" analogy. The Tea Partiers were ranting about government run insurance programs being unnacceptable, but their Medicare is a government run insurance program. They want it to continue, but they don't want government options for anyone else. That, again, is hypocritical.
They want it to continue because they paid so much money into it. If the government could return those "contributions" so they could pay for commercial health insurance, maybe they wouldn't have to "rant."

The problem is, you can't compare government option insurance with Medicare because Medicare is NOT optional.
