Tyler Should Bet Against Obama-Care

The Beatings Will Continue Unt... One-Party State watch...
Robin's happy that "in the NYT, Tyler Cowen dares Obama to put up or shut up."  Tyler himself says:
The most likely possibility is that the government will spend more on health care today, promise to realize savings tomorrow and never succeed in lowering costs. It is rare that governments successfully cut costs by first spending more money.
"Most likely possibility"?  I smell a bet!  Tyler's voiced doubts about the GMU betting ethos, but come on, my friend!  If not now, then when?  There have to be some prominent Obama-care advocates who say the promised savings are real.  Let's find out if they really believe it.
