Krugman shows us Heritage mendacity on health care

Paul Krugman points us to a link on the legislative and policy history of health reform. The points we need to take away are two: the main ideas behind the Affordable Care Act (individual mandate, community rating, subsidies so everyone could afford insurance) are present in a  1989 Heritage Foundation report by Stuart Butler; and Heritage now pretends that this report has no resemblance to the Affordable Care Act. Why am I not surprised?

At least Heritage has not scrubbed the report off its website (as of 10:30 AM July 27).
