Baker: Improve Obamacare By Removing Insurers

http://www.popularresistance.org/baker-improve-obamacare-by-removing-insurers/

The other reason why the focus on the young invincibles is harmful is that it distracts the public from looking at ways to improve Obamacare. These focus on reducing or eliminating the role for private insurers in the system as well as other sources of waste. It would be good to get this debate going as quickly as possible. While the rate of growth of health care costs has slowed sharply in recent years, we still pay more than twice as much per person for our health care as the average for other wealthy countries. As long as we obsess on the number of young people enrolling in Obamacare, we won’t be paying attention to the real issue of eliminating waste. Of course we can all have a good time at the Obamacare card-burning rallies.
