Publice Plans Alongside Private?

The Democrats are currently looking at ways to reach a compromise when it comes to health insurance. The private health insurance companies are fearful that if the government offered health plans, the private industry would be driven out of business. Legislators, however, are looking at states which currently have similar programs in place where public plans are offered alongside private plans and citizens are given the freedom to choose what works best for themselves and their families. Governor Sebelius is so far in favor of this type of system, as she says that these states have shown no evidence of deteioration of the private marketplace. Do you think that programs which work on the smaller scale, as in state level, will work on the larger scale of a national level? Or are the insurance companies right to be fearful?
