I recently had an interesting conversation with a lobbyist for the insurance industry.

We planned to talk about our narrow legislative issues to find any common ground. Predictably, we disagreed on some key points, but we agreed on a lot more. We agreed that it’s hard to get people across the health care system onto the same page and working through problems together. There’s no place in Connecticut for those conversations to happen.

People tend to care about health care and insurance when they’re at risk of losing it. More people are at risk because of COVID. Most observers agree that health care costs are unaffordable, displacing other important priorities, and that we aren’t getting our money’s worth. But we diverge as soon as we talk about the specific problems and whose fault they are.
