"Collectively, we can’t have insurance if people only buy it after they know they need it. Either everyone shares the risk (and the expense) or premiums become unaffordable. If the Affordable Care Act is ultimately found unconstitutional, we will be left with only the public option to address the policy goal of universal coverage. The irony, then, is that those who are challenging the Affordable Care Act as it stands are the very people who could drive us to a public option in the end." (12/28/10)
