You can listen to me, giving what felt at the time like a good talk.

Also, I recommend Keith Hennessey

You cannot magically slow health spending growth without proposing policy changes that affect incentives and behavior. If the President is not willing to bite the bullet and lead on slowing long-term health cost growth, he will instead get a bill which is just a straight entitlement expansion, partly offset by Medicare Advantage cuts and tax increases, and obscured by budget gimmicks.

The way I put it in my talk, the Democrats will go for dessert now (entitlement expansion), spinach later (do something about costs).
