George Will: ObamaCare is pretty much “applied Bloombergism” « Hot Air

George Will: ObamaCare is pretty much “applied Bloombergism” « Hot Air: "An apt assessment by George Will from his new outpost on Fox News this evening, and a similar one to Krauthammer‘s last night; but the emergence of the new, obfuscatory defensive line that “insurers are responsible for canceling plans, not ObamaCare” — which evidently took less than 12 hours to become a bona fide progressive talking point — really helps to drive the point home. Trying to shift the blame onto insurers for the oh-so-heinous crimes of offering a wide variety of both comprehensive and non-comprehensive plans, and pricing them according to their actual associated costs and risks, in an individual market with a high rate of turnover is just another way for the Obama administration to yet again insist to both individuals and businesses they their arbitrary determinations of “fairness” are both wiser and nobler than anything that freely cooperative actors could ever come up with — which they use their executive fiat to override and ignore."
