There is NO competition between an entity that has no stake in producing a profit pitted against one that has that stake. It is an unfair dual. The Gubmint can go on far longer justifying no profit, hell, even operating at a loss while the commercial insurance company must make a profit to survive.
But you know that.

Our Government can't even run a whore house.... | Ron Paul Wins! | Campaign for Liberty at the Daily PaulBack in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are trusting the economy of our country to a pack of nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling booze?
This is a true story.... think they will do better with your health?

I'd contend that medicare actually caused insurance prices to go up. Government isn't good with money, so will pay high prices for services at a hospital. This causes the cost of service to go up which affects everyone.and as a bonus, consumers might see some real competition in insurance prices. medicare didn't cause insurance companies to go down the tubes, neither will adding to that existing public option.
