    You have to regulate insurers....otherwise they'll dump all of their patients on the public plan...which will result in the public plan being expensive...etc...

      regulate insurers.

      Under the combined provisions of Sec 111-116 dumping patients onto the Public Plan is nearly impossible. Really the only way to get rid of someone once they are insured is to trick them into not paying their premium, and even then there are protections that would allow them to get back in.
