The law of unintended health care consequences

I don’t agree with everything this American Enterprise Institute paper proposes, but I definitely like this sentiment:

We must take measured steps to reform the health system, allowing for frequent midcourse corrections as we learn how the system reacts to policy changes. We cannot anticipate every contingency and prevent every adverse consequence, no matter how many experts we consult or pages of legislation we write.

The massive health care legislation being considered in Congress and proposed by Obama is ripe for the law of unintended consequences to fully flower.

One thought on “The law of unintended health care consequences

  1. Law of Unintended Consequences? Is that like when someone who opposes universal health cares gets tossed out by a money-grubbing insurance company? Or their wingnut co-op plan goes belly up? And they find themselves crying to the gubmint to help them? That’s called irony.
