Not even the most ardent defenders of Obamacare claim anymore that the law will lower health coverage costs for Americans. How, then, will it achieve universal coverage, its central goal? The short answer, writes Shikha Dalmia, is that it won't. Like the Iraq War, which cost $1 trillion and produced a quagmire abroad, Obamacare will cost $1 trillion and create a quagmire at home. Americans need an exit strategy.
