Schwartz: Don't Trust The Colorado Trust

In the 3/31/2012 Boulder Daily Camera, Brian Schwartz explains, "Don't trust the Colorado Trust".

Schwartz rebuts some of the fallacious "cost shifting" arguments they make in support of ObamaCare. In particular, the cost shifting from the uninsured is relatively small compared to the cost shifting caused by Medicaid, Medicare, and various mandated insurance benefits. Yet the Colorado Trust is in favor of all of these programs.

As he notes:
Don't be fooled. Mandatory insurance isn't about personal responsibility or reducing cost-shifting. It's about using politically-controlled health plans to advance political control of your medical care.
