I read Megan McArdle's piece in the Atlantic on the math behind the CBO's assessment. There is simply no way for the math to work out. I am the first to understand that we need to bend the cost curve of health care but this bill will do quite the opposite. It will stifle the very disruptive innovation which can bring down costs and simultaneously will continue if not worsen the disconnect between the cost of care and the public understanding of cost.
I thought it was ironic that on the same page was an ad for a book entitled "No one would listen".
