For some reason, Bill Clinton has decided to play into the hands of the bad guys on the ACA:
In the midst of the troubled rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration has done a fairly effective job persuading red-state Democrats to refrain from endorsing legislative changes that would substantively cripple the new law. But organizing skittish red-state senators is one thing; organizing Bill Clinton is another. The former president now says that the government should change Obamacare to allow everybody in the individual market who likes their plan to keep it..
Really, no. Obama was wrong to make claims about the ability of individuals to keep their insurance that were literally false. But of course 1)any health care reform doing was going to prevent people from keeping some forms of crappy insurance, and 2)it’s silly to imply that under the status quo ante you were guaranteed to be able to keep your insurance.
