Final note on health care: We’ll have to wait and see
Share Now on:
This final note on the way out today: An observation, if you will, about some of what you heard on the program today — the health care bits, specifically.
The truth is, for all the predictions about how much it’s going to cost, how much it’s going to save or what’s going to happen next — we just don’t know. Nobody does. The American economy is an inherently unruly beast, and when you make structural changes to fully 20 percent of it, you just kind of have to wait and see what happens.
We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
