Matthew Yglesias: Scalise's Obamacare replacement is a beautiful unicorn: Noted

Matthew Yglesias: Scalise's Obamacare replacement is a beautiful unicorn:

Representative Steve Scalise…. "We… make sure that people with pre-existing conditions cannot be discriminated against… [without] put[ting] in place mandates that increase the costs of health care and push people out of the insurance that they like.” So here's one example of the kind of costly mandate that a free marketeer might want to avoid: a mandate that insurance companies not discriminate against customers with preexisting conditions…. My strong suspicion is that Rep Scalise is not in fact some kind of public policy prodigy who's thought his way out of a dilemma that's gone unsolved by the governments of all fifty U.S. states and every industrialized country on the planet…. That'd be nice.
