God, if only. But it’s a nice step in the right direction.
(To my occasional readers who came here by way of Dr. Landsburg and/or Dr. Kling: believe it or not, I’d be equally happy with a bill that simply outlawed health insurance entirely in much the same way that Ponzi schemes are illegal. But I go to war with the armies I have, and the status quo was the worst of all possible options. Onward and upward.)
