From Bloomberg:

The problem with reformers is rarely that they’re wrong about the status quo; there are a lot of awful things in the world that could use fixing, and the reformers have usually correctly identified at least a few of them. The problem with radical reformers is that they tend to forget that things can get worse, as well as better…

“‘My guess is that we’ll have somewhere around a million and a half people signed up for Obamacare on January 1 in the states and in healthcare.gov,’ he says. The big question then, he adds, is ‘why have we gone through this whole dislocation of the American health insurance system if only a million and a half to two million buy health insurance?'”
