Obamacare defenders make lemonade

Democrats are now trying to argue that it’s actually a good thing that Obamacare will double health insurance premiums. The argument, if I understand it, is that inexpensive policies only exist because they either exclude poor insurance risks or charge them more (well, yes), and thus they are unfair and shouldn’t exist.

The idea that using actuarial tables to set insurance premiums is somehow wrong certainly lies at the heart of socialized medicine, but it’s a very long way from the promise that “if you like your insurance, you can keep it”.
