NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- "The ease with which you can short here is pretty remarkable," said Jim Cramer on Monday's 'Stop Trading!' segment on CNBC. "If I were at my old hedge fund, I have to admit, I'd be shorting everything. It just seems like there's very little risk right now."

He said he'd even short stocks such as

WellPoint

(WLP)

,

Humana

(HUM) - Get Humana Inc. (HUM) Report

and

UnitedHealth

(UNH) - Get UnitedHealth Group Incorporated Report

, even though the long-term picture might be sound. He said people overreact when they hear the term "public option" and begin to short these stocks, and "Washington doesn't care what happens to stocks."

In the end, Cramer said, it won't hurt the stocks, "but who wants to be long?"

He also offered up a long-short pair in

Nucor

TheStreet Recommends

(NUE) - Get Nucor Corporation Report

and

U.S. Steel

(X) - Get United States Steel Corporation Report

. "I want to sell Letter X, and I want to buy Nucor," he said.

Cramer said that before

Amazon

(AMZN) - Get Amazon.com, Inc. Report

reported, people were anticipating a "major move against them" by

Wal-Mart

(WMT) - Get Walmart Inc. Report

. But he said Amazon is now the "lowest-cost producer on the Web," something that used to be Wal-Mart's game.

"Wal-Mart cannot dominate on the Web because they don't have the fulfillment down like Amazon does," Cramer said. "If Wal-Mart can't be low-cost, why go there?"
