Top ObamaCare Pundit: GOP Proposal Pretty Darned Good

By far, the two most prolific and analytical commentators on ObamaCare are Bloomberg's Megan McArdle and Forbes's Avik Roy.  If you are not reading them, you are less informed than you should be.  Thus it is of no small import that Roy has declared the Coburn-Burr-Hatch proposal pretty good.
“Repealing and replacing” Obamacare with market-oriented reforms has been the Republican mantra for years now. If you’re a long-time follower of this space, you know that we’re skeptical that Obamacare will ever be repealed, GOP slogans to the contrary.

The plan seeks to ensure that as many Americans have health coverage as Obamacare does. It’s a proposal grounded in the real-world tradeoffs that all serious reformers must make. Want to know how those tradeoffs might affect you? Read on.
