The dramatic contrast between the results of Obama’s policies and Reagan’s policies have already resolved the debate our current president is having talking to himself on his “economic tour.”
The idea that a Washington bureaucracy should determine how much and what kind of integration an industry should have is more than a little troubling, but that seems to be what Einer Elhauge would like to have ObamaCare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board do, and do it through regulation alone — no more messy congressional squabbles.

Do Europeans really need reminding that then-candidate Barack Obama promised on the eve of his November 2008 election as U. S. President that the “fundamental transformation of America” was about to begin?
Yes, the United States of America is being run by a man who believes that transferring $25 from every man, woman, and child in America to third world countries in the name of “climate assistance” is progress — and is just the beginning.
