  •  Unlikely slower growth in healthcare spending due (0+ / 0-)

    to ACA.

    There has been a slowdown of healthcare spending in the industrialized world due to the weak global economy.

    There has been a large shift to higher deductibles and more copays in US insurance for the past few years.  This reduced the growth in insurance premiums.  In addition, combined with the weaker economy and higher out of pocket payments people have been delaying treatments and making greater efforts to stay in network.  None of this was part of ACA.

    As little or none of its features of ACA meant to reduce cost have come into effect, it is hard to credit ACA for lower cost growth.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
