[health] inequality has declined dramatically [in the U.S.] over the past century [without Obamacare].  It has continued to decline even in the past 40 years, a period over which it is generally thought that income inequality has risen considerably.“

Other effective ways exist to ensure necessary health insurance coverage for more Americans that are less onerous, less unpopular, and less constitutionally questionable than an individual mandate.  They include extending protection against new medical underwriting because of changes in health status to those in the individual market if they maintain qualified, continuous insurance coverage, redistributing and prioritizing current insurance coverage subsidies, maintaining a backup system of safety-net protections, and improving the cost, quality, and value of health care.”

Reforming the [health care insurance] system involves, first and foremost, encouraging people to buy insurance for themselves, by eliminating the tax-code discrimination against individually purchase health insurance.  Second, people should be able to buy insurance across state lines.  When individuals are buying their own policies, they will vote with their feet for policies that have fewer mandates and fewer problems with adverse selection.  Third, we should eliminate federal mandates that drive up insurance costs, especially in the individual market.  In addition, we should eliminate the barriers against long-term insurance contracts: (1) the ability of policyholders to terminate their coverage at will; and (2) policies that discourage the formation of multi-year insurance contracts.
