The dirty secret that no one in Washington wants to lay on the voters is that there are three types of healthcare:
1) Universal healthcare
2) Affordable healthcare
3) High-quality healthcare
The dirty secret is that you can never have more than two of them at any one time. Sort of the mirror image of the game rock-paper-scissors.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act gives us the first and third—with no lifetime caps—but will eventually result in premiums becoming unaffordable. This shouldn't come as a surprise as the name of any government bill usually results in achieving the opposite effect.
