Open Questions


The Washington Post has a really useful chart today that highlights some of the key open questions in implementing the health-care bill, and who is lobbying to have the questions answered in the way that they want. The chart shows how much still has to be determined with respect to the new law, and also the degree to which outside forces can continue to shape the final product.

One interesting thing to note is the conspicuous absence of conservative organizations involved in this effort, with the exception of the small-business advocates at the NFIB. Part of this may be an oversight by the Post and the Kaiser Health Network, which put together the chart.  But the chart should serve as a reminder to conservatives not to take their eyes off the implementation ball.
