  • On the ACA (aka Obamacare):

    The biggest reason it failed is that the Democrats took the Progressive belief that you can legislate people to be altruistic and used that as the basis for designing it.

    That is, they really thought that the young and healthy would sign up for Obamacare to offset the sick and lame that would sign up. What happened instead was a combination of cross purpose (kids can stay on parent's health care until they're 26 mostly aimed at college students whose parents generally have employer coverage and won't be using Obamacare), and simple economics (young adults don't make enough to pay for health insurance and the penalty is cheaper).

    That meant that lots of high risk, high cost people signed up and nobody that was low risk, low cost did to offset it.

    Trying to force people to be altruistic never works. They tend to find a way around it when they can see altruism doesn't benefit them personally.
