George, The key quote from Lowry’s piece for those who can’t wait:
Because the private health-insurance market doesn?t function properly, the government is left to pick up the pieces. But it is government policies that distort the health-insurance market in the first place. Ideally, people would pay for their own health insurance, the way they do with, say, auto insurance. But the tax code favors insurance that people get through their employers.
Hillary’s plan does nothing to address this. She would just allow the current system to further erode private markets.
