Paul Krugman comments on the failed Republican effort to gin up a substitute for the Affordable Care Act. A nugget:
In the case of health care, however, there’s an even deeper problem: The GOP can’t come up with an alternative to the Affordable Care Act because no such alternative exists. In particular, if you want to preserve protection for people with pre-existing conditions — the health issue that matters most to voters, including half of Republicans — Obamacare is the most conservative policy that can do that. The only other options are things like Medicare for all that would involve moving significantly to the left, not the right.
Do please read the rest.
