This is a story about how the Obama administration simultaneously stretched the Affordable Care Act possibly beyond its limits and diminished the prospects of that law achieving a sustainable health insurance market.

The pools are less stable as a result and some individuals may needlessly have been cast into medical bankruptcy.
