The Massachusetts Health Care Reform Act as a National Model . . .

Maybe of what not to do.

I couldn’t let this go by without noting it - he has a Nobel after all and I, well, I have a sixth man award from a high school basketball team. Paul Krugman on health care reform:

Without an effective public option, the Obama health care reform will be simply a national version of the health care reform in Massachusetts: a system that is a lot better than nothing but has done little to address the fundamental problem of a fragmented system, and as a result has done little to control rising health care costs.

I think I have read that description of the Massachusetts act before. No, wait, I think I wrote it.
