An interesting perspective on the ACA:
Obama moved to exempt his WH staffers since they make such a modest compensation that it is too expensive for them to be compelled to participate, even through "exchanges."
Congress is now trying to exempt themselves from it as well.
Should this tell us something about what a good idea this is? Now that those who tell us that this is the greatest thing since sliced bread FOR US ... THEY want no part of it for themselves.
Although I don't believe that single payer is the answer, ACA seems to be the worst of both worlds.
Interestingly ... cosmetic surgery and Lasik eye surgery are not covered by insurance or ACA ... and in those specialties costs have come down and quality and innovation have increased. Coincidence?
