Lanhee Chen for Bloomberg on the upgrade chances for a death spiral:
At its base, the data show that people insured through the law’s exchanges have higher rates of serious medical conditions. Of the enrollees who have seen a doctor or other health-care provider in the first quarter of this year, 27 percent have significant medical problems, including diabetes, cancer, heart trouble and psychiatric conditions. That rate is substantially higher than that for patients in nonexchange market plans over the same period. And it’s more than double the rate of those who were able to hold onto their existing individual market insurance plans after President Barack Obama was forced to allow them to keep them.
That Means It's Working™.
Chen adds, "This outcome should not surprise anyone." And it certainly doesn't surprise Longtime Sharp VodkaPundit Readers.
