Re "Affordable Care Act's big secret: It's already a surprising success" (Viewpoints, Nov. 30): Columnist Paul Krugman is a prime example of a liberal mind that requires a distorted view of life to justify its thinking. Krugman says that Obamacare is a success because "it's bending the curve - slowing the seemingly inexorable rise in health costs," but that's absurd. The insurance industry has been raising rates because of expected costs brought about Obamacare. This has been proven. Do the ends always justify the means? Is it permissible to distort the truth and spend billion of dollars as long as the public lives the life they should live?
