I've a member of a labour union and I've been involved in choosing our group medical insurance. The gentleman from Blue Cross says that there is a great deal of competition for medical insurance in Oregon. That's true in the sense that there may be several companies with prices that may vary by as much as $ 100 a month. That is competition - but if it costs the empoloyer $ 1500 to $ 2000 a month for coverage, they cannot afford to purchase the insurance.
The hope is that a government sponsored health plan will bring down the basic cost of insurance by a significant amount - not just 10 or 20 dollars.
