I see that the insurance executives are quite happy with health care reform, which is unsurprising since they will get a whole bunch of new customers. But it turns out they are even sanguine about surviving if they have to compete with a public plan:

"I believe the private system is important because it brings innovation, it brings energy, it brings change, it brings ideas that are often used in the public sector system as well," said Richard Collins, senior vice president for underwriting, pricing and health care economics at UnitedHealthcare. "I think we can have both a public and private system."

The Democrats should start quoting this expert.
