As the Graham-Cassidy (Heller-Johnson) health care bill appears to achieve a rapid intensification of support, so too have lies and exaggerations about its contents. Some people are very mistrustful about the states’ willingness and ability to provide a regulatory environment in which broad segments of society will have decent health care. The competency and motivation of the states needs to be compared not to some fantasy federal government with unlimited resources, constant benevolence and technical competence, but to a federal government that in fact is deeply in debt and that has proven itself inept at creating stable health insurance markets.
