Hard Truths For The Right

Tyler Cowen compiles a list. These leaped out at me:

3. Lower taxes don't spur economic development as much as it is often claimed, at least not below the "fifty percent or less of gdp" range...

5. I'm all for Health Savings Accounts, but unless done on a Singaporean scale, and with lots of forced savings, they're not a health care plan to significantly benefit most Americans.  There is less of a coherent health care plan, coming from this side, than one might like to think. 

6. There is already considerable health care cost control embedded in the ACA, most of all for Medicare, and this is not admitted with sufficient frequency.

I'd like to see a universal health insurance proposal based on HSAs that really does provide enough for people to get healthcare. So far, not so much.
