Opinion: What Sweden can tell us about Obamacare
Last month, for the 37th time, the House of Representatives voted to repeal Obamacare, with many Republicans saying that its call for greater government involvement in the health care system spells doom. Yet most other industrial countries have health care systems with far more government involvement than we are ever likely to see under Obamacare. What does their experience tell us about Republican fears? While in Sweden this month as a visiting scholar, I've asked several Swedish health economists to share their thoughts about that question. They have spent their lives under a system in which most health care providers work directly for the government.
