HOLTZ-EAKIN: Betting the future on it
For health-reform advocates, this is a real “pinch me” moment. For the first time, it appears that real and effective health care reform - comprehensive in scope, built on a durable, bipartisan political foundation - is possible. The president and his party can reach across the aisle and make bipartisan reform a reality. Or they can tax, borrow and spend us into a future we can’t afford.
Douglas Holtz-Eakin was director of the Congressional Budget Office in 2003-05 and is author of the Manhattan Institute report “Forging a New Plan for Health Care: Principles and Priorities for Sustainable Reform.”
