Common sense on health insurance reform
Posted by sanityinjection on February 25, 2010
As with many issues, most of what you read about health insurance reform is long on scoring political points and short on telling the truth about why our current system is really broken. I invite you to check out Clifford Asness’ comments over at Bloomberg. Because Mr. Asness is not a politican, he is free to tell the truth about touchy subjects such as the tax deduction for health insurance and the isse of pre-exisitng conditions.
Asness’ proposals may or may not be the right solutions to health care, but he zeroes in on the issues that today’s “bipartisan health care summit” should be talking about – that is, if it were a serious effort at compromise rather than a pointless Potemkin show for the media.
