"In a normal political environment, a landmark piece of legislation [like the Affordable Care Act] ...

... would be adjusted over time to improve it. ACA is far overdue for that. Republicans have not wanted to make commonsense adjustments because they have wanted the whole law to collapse. To me a major opportunity is to change the age-rating bands so that a 65-year-old can be charged 5 times what a 21-year-old is charged rather than 3 times. This will enhance the viability of the exchanges and in general make health insurance more popular among younger, healthier people."

— David Williams, co-founder of the Boston consulting firm Health Business Group, told AIS's Health Plan Week.
