Why Obamacare should have had a public option

The NY Times has a story this morning about the ways that insurance companies are limiting customers of their plans in the insurance exchanges. This is precisely why the government should have been offering a public plan, which would have forced insurance companies to compete.

That being said, I have had a plan that was discounted because it has a minuscule network and have survived. I suspect that for those of us on NJ Basic and Essentials plans, we will see significant improvement.
