Blind partisans and rigid ideologues will refuse to accept the realty that Obamacare (the deceptively named Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act). Even though rate hikes are enormous (and no one is reported to have saved $2,500 as Barack Obama promised) and the number of choices has been slashed (despite Obama’s promise that you would be able to keep your doctor.)
Yes, I keep harping on Obama’s false promises because he should be held to account. As if he, government bureaucrats and pie-in-the-sky academics could re-create and manage in infinite detail the workings of the entirety of America’s health system. Republicans have earned the right to hurl a “told ya so” at the utopians.
But, now what?
Despite what progressives and Democrats say, there are plenty of ideas about how to fix the health system. For consideration, I recommending reading one put forward by Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, a writer and fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. As he writes in The Week:
ObamaCare’s combination of mandates, subsidies, and regulations very predictably caused markets to go haywire and become inefficient. But this shouldn’t just be a moment for partisan point-scoring. ObamaCare’s ostensible goal — to ensure that every American has a safety net when it comes to health care — is a laudable one. ObamaCare’s failures will hurt millions of families. This is a serious problem that requires a serious solution.
So, how do we fix ObamaCare? By learning from the same principles that made it obvious ObamaCare would fail in the first place.
