The impossibility of ACA

Neither The Left or Right can win on this one.  The Obama admin set impossible expectations and made political promises that can’t be kept.

No pre-existing conditions. No risk adjustments other than age. No cancellation. No lifetime caps. No rationing. No behavioral controls. No price controls. No effective mandate.  Kids stay on until 26. Sign-up or don’t, get sick, then sign-up, get treatment, quit paying, again. Most everything is an Essential Benefit.

Unfettered, affordable access to the rapidly advancing, increasingly expensive US health care system (drugs, procedures, facilities, equipment, providers, R&D) for 330,000,000 rapidly aging, increasingly unhealthy people?
