I think you are confusing the public option and the mandate. The mandate to buy care does limit people’s freedom of choice to some degree, (though I think the fact that everyone already has access to emergency rooms means that we’ve decided as a society that everyone should be a part of the health system in one way or another). But the public option is completely distinct from the mandate— you could have a public option with or without the mandate. As for the government being a health insurance company, Medicare and Medicaid are already two huge examples of this, so unless you want to shut down Medicare, I don’t see how the public option changes the constitutionality question.
