Obamacare: The reckoning, Charles Krauthammer

Yeah, like he said.

Obamacare dominated the 2010 midterms, driving its Democratic authors to a historic electoral shellacking. But since then, the issue has slipped quietly underground.

Read the whole thing. I linked this because it expresses my own feelings and concerns so well. It also explains why there have been so many health care politics postings in recent weeks.

The results of this debate will have profound effects on our society in the coming years and like it or not these issues will impact our profession.
