Quick Links: Armstrong, Incentives, Free Rider Myths, Opportunity

At the TOS blog, Ari Armstrong notes how, "Force Begets Force Under Health Mandates".

More performance measure FAIL: "Hospital pay incentives fail to help patients".

Avik Roy: "Myths of the 'Free Rider' Health Care Problem".

(Note: I don't necessarily support some of Roy's proposed alternatives to EMTALA unless they are part of a transition to total elimination of government interference in health care. Voluntary charity can and should be the method that the truly need receive emergency health care if they cannot otherwise afford it.)

Investor's Business Daily: "If The Court Dumps ObamaCare, Republicans Must Be Ready"

(I especially like how the article offers politically-realistic free-market reforms that would move our country's health system in the right direction.)
