McArdle:

It is true that some countries have controlled costs, and therefore made it easier to afford coverage for more people. It is also true that some countries have cut marginal tax rates, and thereby actually raised the tax revenue they collected.

Chait:

McArdle’s comparison — some countries have cut taxes and thereby raised revenues, some countries have controlled costs with universal coverage — turns out to be true if you replace the first “some” with “zero” and the second “some” with “all.” Other than that, great comparison!

Game, set…although, in fairness, it must be said that Democratic presidents will probably be unwilling to engage in the avoidance of public frozen custard eating that would allow these savings to be realized.
