Argument: General statements against 2010 US health care reform

Issue Report: US health care reform


David Brooks. “The Hardest Call.” New York Times. December 17, 2009: “If I were a senator forced to vote today, I’d vote no. If you pass a health care bill without systemic incentives reform, you set up a political vortex in which the few good parts of the bill will get stripped out and the expensive and wasteful parts will be entrenched. […] Defenders say we can’t do real reform because the politics won’t allow it. The truth is the reverse. Unless you get the fundamental incentives right, the politics will be terrible forever and ever.”
