"President-elect Donald Trump has been in the news lately, suggesting his plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act would keep the parts that people like. By this, he's referring primarily to the provision that prevents health insurers from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. Of course, the trouble here is that all of the destructive parts of the Affordable Care Act were the (utterly unsuccessful) attempt to make coverage of pre-existing conditions sustainable. New evidence of this failure comes in all the time. Perhaps even more important than the Affordable Care Act's failure, however, are the reasons that the US health insurance system was broken even before President Obama courageously stepped in to make it worse."
