  1. Joe S. says:

    Kinsley is normally wrong about almost everything. On this subject, he is surprisingly right.

  2. Mark says:

    Whatever you may think about the Massachussetts Health Plan (and it’s not all bad), there is no mechanism there for controlling health care costs.

  3. Bruce says:

    Kinsley is more than right. This is the best article I have seen on this wrongly decided case.

  4. Fred says:

    Isn’t Massachusetts a potential model for Obama’s health reform?

  5. Bart says:

    Massachusetts is a model for the dangers of wholesale reform in any complex system, and an argument in favor of incrementalism so long as the increments are substantive.

    A logical first increment might be the Venn diagram intersection of conservative and liberal proposals. Not a “compromise,” but an Occam’s razor approach.

  6. Bart says:

    …in other words, something that neither side has reason to oppose, because they aren’t painted into any corners. But I suppose clean legislation is an oxymoron.
