Henry Aaron, the brains behind the R plan for Medicare (ie, the Paul Ryan plan which Rominee also loves), has changed his mind. Maybe he got tired after hitting all those home runs. In any case, he no longer thinks the plan will work. This, of course, means Rs will love it even more, since things that haven't ever worked or mathematically won't work are what they cleave to most; but I think it's important to listen to what he says. It cuts both ways:
"The evidence to date is not encouraging," Aaron said...
I take a couple of points from this: first, the ACA is creating some innovations that need time to be assessed, good or bad. Second, the very idea of "premium support" has been suspect from the beginning, which is among the reasons I've never much liked the ACA.
Since this isn't just some guy on the street who's changed his mind, but the one behind the whole damn thing, you'd think it'd be given a certain amount of credence by Ryanites, give them pause, send them back to the drawing board.
