If government is involed it will fail.

Government wasn't involved in the health insurance system previous to the ACA? Are you waiting for one of the clowns on the bus to surface with a simple plan for a pure free market system?  What's holding them up?

 

And if you had read the article you probably wouldn't have made that statement.

Re: Hell yes, running against unaffordable care act is a winner.

The problem is, they are trying a one-size fits all (or maybe more like an 'all must fit one size') solution, to a problem that has maybe a thousand different 'sizes' to contend with.   So, it wound up being an overly complex 1500 page monstrosity that had some aspects good, some bad, and some even unConstitutional.

The problem, as I see it, was that once passed, and the flaws revealed, there was no attempt at patching the leaks, but rather each side blaming the other as to why the wheels went flat.

The trouble is central planning NEVER works. The only way to control cost while delivering a quality product is through the free market.

That's funny, (sarcasm on) I always thought that the reason central planning hasn't worked in the past, was because the central planners weren't given free enough reign to plan, or enough of other people's money, to make it work.
