After the disaster try by Paul Ryan and the GOP and President Trump to repeal and replace the ACA bill, I have come to the conclusion there is a better way.
We should take a lesson from President Obama and pass a bill with no details but a general framework. Let the implementors workout the details going forward after the bill is passed.
As we have seen from the past 6 years, the language and technical details of ACA did not matter much. The Secretary of HHS seems to have great leeway in implementing the bill. Even the Supreme court can read words that were not in the bill by calling it a tax instead of a penalty...
The point being, the wording dles not matter any more. As long as we have the general principles right, the details can be whatever that will work.
Why spend so much time and energy arguing over wording and minutia when it matters little at the end?
