Affordable Care Act: Marcia Angell’s view

Interesting view here…..

The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, puts me in mind of the old proverb: Be careful what you wish for. Democrats on a victory lap should watch their step, because John Roberts may have given Mitt Romney a gift. The impact on the health system will be much smaller than the political fallout, because with or without Obamacare, the American health system will continue to unravel — quickly if Romney is elected, slowly if Obama is re-elected.

Medicynical Note:  The outcome will depend on the will of the public to either provide and pay for universal care one way or the other or not.  Whatever the case, I agree with Dr. Angell, the current over bloated, inefficient, ridiculously expensive non-system is finished.
