Government works, maybe

So, individual mandate aside, the good citizens of Massachusetts seem to like their new health reform law, according to a new Harvard SPH survey, available here. Of course, the cost curve there hasn't been bent, although most respondents didn't blame the legislation for increased costs.

Reducing costs was Ezra Klein's topic today in the Washington Post, available here, comparing Republican partial privatization of Medicare with ACA's IPAD.

… a choice we’ve been left with: a plan that has never worked or a plan that’s never been tried. As for the approach that’s helped every other industrialized country achieve universal coverage at about half our costs? Well, we’re still not ready to talk about that.
