    “We should do everything in our power to lower prices first”. Yep. And prepare for the wailing and gnashing of teeth as the sacred cows of the doctors, the hospitals, the pharmaceutical companies and the insurance companies do everything in their very great power not to be gored.

    I’m not a professor, but TAI is starting to make me wish I were. After reading the nth essay about Obamacare as healthcare reform (It’s the cost. It’s the enrollment numbers. It’s the delivery networks. It’s the “glitches”. It’s the broken promises. It’s the failure to successfully address what it was intended to address) I would love to make this assignment:
    Write a …word essay considering the non-healthcare aspects of the Affordable Care Act with particular attention to the effect on the relationship between the citizen and the state.

      In 25 words or less, it’s a wealth redistribution project of incredible magnitude.

    Why, pray tell, would anybody be surprised that the insured who qualify for subsidies wouldn’t switch (at the expense of those who don’t). Why would anybody be surprised, given the exorbitant cost of “ACA” to those not qualifying for a subsidy, that the enrollment is skewed toward those likely to require more care than they’re paying for?
