Economics / Politics

John Cassidy is pragmatic about Paul Ryan’s big picture, but as skeptical as everyone else on Ryan’s details. An instructive comment below:

“…thinking that the Ryan notion of using vouchers without cost control will force prices down is based on delusion or willful ignorance. Does not our current system allow us to “shop” health plans annually? Has that worked? Have premiums dropped along with the price of flat screen tv’s and laptops? No, they only march upwards and that will not change until the market is controlled from the top down.”
