3 Words on Healthcare
Yesterday evening I stumbled across this sober, measured discussion about the federal health care bill from our friend Bob Ward at the Rockefeller Institute of Government. You may remember Bob from the panel on state budgets at the 2009 ACCE Convention in Raleigh.
The central thesis of this short piece is simple: We Don't Know.
We're not sure exactly how, over the long run, this bill will impact American's who currentlyhave medical insurance. Nor are we sure precisely what impact expansion of insurance coverage will have on state budgets. We do know there is a lot of uncertainty and we also know how it will be challenging to decrease costs.
