One of the hallmarks of the technocratic centrists is the belief that industry regulation is passé--that policy makers must rely on private enterprises because that is where you find the real experts. Which leads to stuff like this:
Quality Software Services Inc., or Q.S.S.I., a unit of the UnitedHealth Group, developed the identity management system, another major component that allowed consumers to register and establish accounts.
I suppose it's too way too late to bring this up again, but the bill was called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. "Protection" largely referring to the insurance companies.
