Allen: Move health care focus to employers, providers, consumers
Bringing this issue to the Supreme Court has never really been about health care, but rather about politics. Hopefully, the debate and focus can now shift to what the Affordable Care Act will actually mean to employers, health care providers, insurers and consumers. Although I suspect much of this will be held in abeyance until after the November elections, I can't think of a more pressing issue and one that needs to be a lot less politicized.
