Editorial Says ACA Claims Ignore ‘Perverse Incentives’
A U-T San Diego editorial argues that President Obama's claim that "more Americans will have health coverage" under the Affordable Care Act "ignores the [law's] perverse incentives" and "assumes the law will be competently implemented by the states and embraced by the uninsured." However, if the Obama administration "can fix the disincentives that encourage individuals to go without insurance and get people to believe it's in their interest to sign up," there is "a chance that more Americans will have coverage," it states.
