    And that a slowdown in the increases of costs was the long term goal, rather than a roll-back of insurance premiums.

    As Kenlac says, we have to put the "wedge" in and get universal/single payer in place in order to significantly reduce the "moral problem" you refer to.  I don't disagree that 30 million uninsured in 2023 is 30 million too many, but it's better than twice that number.

    But this is a good development, however much we remain to have severe issues with our health care system.  Eventually, if successes like this continue, the people who are against the ACA will run out of talking points.  It might also disarm the debt-hounds, also.
