CNN.com was kind enough to ask me to write an opinion piece for them on the court challenges to the ACA:
(CNN) — It’s very likely that you will see a lot in the news about Republicans’ opposition to the individual mandate and their challenge of the constitutionality of health care reform in the next few weeks. The individual mandate is the Obama health care reform law’s requirement — ruled unconstitutional by a judge Monday — that all Americans obtain insurance.
Surprisingly, little of that news will focus on the cost, quality or access in the U.S. health care system. What is being fought over now is politics, not policy.
Go read the whole thing here. Or, you can go to the CNN.com main opinion page here. Mine is the piece right before George Clooney’s.
