In Friday’s Washington Post, the editorial page opines that, “… not every problem can or should be solved by federal regulation, and there is still a decent chance that the balance between regulation and liberty that the Affordable Care Act struck will work. If it does, the more rational health-care system that results will have been well worth the price in expanded government intervention in the health-care market.”
That’s the conclusion, but the body of the piece reads like an introduction to a manifesto about why what we really need is a single-payer system. A "rational health-care system" is the the global code phrase for "one-size-fits-all" care. Have a look here and judge for yourself.
Here’s my view on some of the same problems from a different angle (as seen in yesterday’s Des Moines Register).
The devil is in the details.
