The horribly mis-named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (popularly known as Obamacare) isn't about health care it's about insurance. Or, to put it another way,
One of the harder realities is that health care reform is not about public health. That's the mistake people make. . . . Health care reform is public finance. And when you get into public finance, it's not about doing a study to guide policy; it's about creating a business plan.
