The country could be doing much better -should be doing much better. And that is the theme of my Washington Examiner column today.
The immediate problem is the enormous new costs and even larger uncertainties engendered by Obamacare. Hard to plan your Christmas budget when you don’t know what the health insurance tab is going to be in 2014. Even in states with barely functioning websites like California, the insurance tsars there admit they don’t have a clue whether the posted rates will be sustainable. (Translation: They expect adverse selection to drive rates for individual purchasers through the roof in 2015.)
Governor Christie, Senator Rubio –all of the would-be GOP nominees should start now to say again and again “The country could be doing much better, we should be doing much better, and with genuine reform, we will be doing much better.”
