Public health insurance plans

Harry Redi the Senate Majority Leader stated Monday that he will include a public health insurance plan in the final Senate overhaul legislation. This was a reversal from a few weeks ago when he discarded the idea, in an attempt to avoid estranging party moderates.  It is still unknown if Reid has the votes necessary to pass the bill in the senate with the public option. This provision would give individual states the right to opt out of a government ran health insurance plan. This provision has yet to be examined by the congressional Budget Office. Other senators would prefer an elicit option that would allow a public option only if insurers fail to rein in costs. What do you think about a public health insurance plan?
