People need to consider how many times we give over our decision making to the government and the ensuing impact on our freedoms and options. Government rarely solves anything, rarely makes a positive impact on the things they set out to solve.
I don't disagree that a minimum all plans will have alot of the same options because that is now mandated. I just went and looked at BCBSKC plans for 2014 and they have 24 plans, with only 2 of them on the Exchange. I don't know how many they had prior but that seems reasonable. I was more talking about increase competition in regards to more companies. Don't know if that will happen though.
