Obama's Folly

Robert Samuelson says if anything is clear its that President Obama overreached in his healthcare overhaul and delayed the recovery.
WASHINGTON -- We pay our presidents for judgment, and President Obama committed a colossal error of judgment in making health-care "reform" a centerpiece of his first term. Ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) -- and regardless of how the court decides -- it's clear that Obama overreached. His attempt to achieve universal health insurance coverage is a massive feat of social engineering that, by its sweeping nature, weakens the economic recovery and antagonizes millions of Americans.
UPDATE: Even Austan Goolsbee, Obama's top economic advisor until recently, says the president should admit his mistake and apologize to the American people.


UPDATE II: A former supporter of the individual mandate changes his mind.
