Health Care Nightmare

April 11, 2014

Obamacare, it was clear from the start, was going to be much ado about not much. It was the unique experience of controlling a private, for profit health care system, by expanding it, under some conditions.

No other country tried that before (in Switzerland, as in many other countries, the insurance companies are not for profit; making basic care for profit is a non sequitur).

So here we are. A big mess, little traction. A few good things, but what’s plan B, when private insurance companies raise their premiums above what’s reasonable?

Answer: well, for progressives, back to reconsidering things from scratch.

The American Health Care Nightmares are far from over.
