Frum: After Waterloo

A few good ideas for broad changes to the 2010 health care reform law from David Frum.

I've long wondered why the Obama administration didn't call for universal health care by labeling it an expansion of Medicare (#3 in Frum's list). Americans love Medicare. Liberal, conservative, nearly all would fight tooth and nail to preserve it. Why not use it as the basis for covering everyone?
