There is a lesson to learn somewhere in the debate last month about the unfortunate circumstance of British baby Charlie Gard. Charlie was born with an inherited (yet) incurable disease that left him on a ventilator, blind and deaf. The government wanted to dictate his care in spite of the fact that his parents raised money to pay for his care with cash. The lesson: This is what will happen if the GOP allows the ACA to deteriorate into a single-payer system and choice evaporates from the American lexicon. In the meantime, the Senate debate did not show much promise as a “fix” to the ACA and it doesn’t look like the government is getting out of the way any time soon.
