To speed waits, cut paperwork

IN HIS column on the failings of Romneycare, Jeff Jacoby complains that long wait times to see physicians can be attributed to the fact that the law has led to near-universal insurance coverage. How awful! Too many people with health care!

Jacoby then warns that if Obamacare has the same effect nationally, the same dreadful increases in coverage and waits for medical appointments would result. Right again.

Perhaps we should increase the number of health care providers or even decrease the amount of time they must devote to insurance paperwork by instituting true universal health care?
