Told You So
Mark Kleiman notes that "The two health-insurance trade groups have now endorsed an individual mandate for health insurance coverage."
This Prof Kleiman expected this to happen. He explains why.
I too expected this, at least since July 8 2008 (same explanation).
Best of all, I recently tried to explain it to Paul Krugman (I mean via a blog which he doesn't read).
Matt Yglesias told you so too.
