There are two ways to evaluate Obamacare on its tenth birthday.
We can point to the number of people who are better off and speculate on how many more there would be if only there were more government spending and more regulation.
Or, we could point to the number of people who are worse off and speculate on how many fewer there would be if only there were less government spending and less regulation.
Its easy to find the first approach. Pick up just about any newspaper or magazine in the mainstream media. The health care media is even worse.
The latest issue of Health Affairs has 25 articles on Obamacare, ten years on. Not a single article is focused on the plight of people who have been harmed.
So, whats the bottom line? Is the country better off or worse off because of Obamacare? The health policy community and the health care reporters are so incredibly biased, its almost impossible to know.
