President wants everyone but himself to pay more
Topic - James C. Capretta
The president signed Obamacare into law one year ago today. Washington's takeover of health care has imposed more bureaucratic controls on a system already hobbled by too much government intervention. Solutions should spring from good medicine and good markets, not from a Big Brother power grab.
"But the president hasn't tried," say National Review contributors James C. Capretta, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and Tevi Troy, a senior fellow at Hudson Institute.
As James C. Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center explained in Thursday testimony to the House Budget Committee, the structure of government subsidies for Medicare, Medicaid and (through the tax code) extravagant employer-provided health insurance is responsible for causing health care costs to skyrocket.
