"In the short run, some people would win, but others would lose. And I suspect that the losers would greatly outnumber the winners."

Well... my guess is some losers would really hit rock bottom given the extend of the various dislocations in this economy, and their situations would provide some heart wrenching news stories... That, and the losers would be a ready victim class for politicians to swoop in and rescue with crappy short term policies. In the end we may be all dead. In the mid term we'd all be better off. In the short run, we can expect politicians to pander and screw things up worse than they'd otherwise be....

Krugman makes many good points in the article. I agree with him on his perspectives on health coverage.
