More on Over‐​Interpreting the Oregon Medicaid Study

Matt Yglesias writes:

a new rigorous study from Oregon confirms that Medicaid does, indeed, save lives

As The Atlantic’s Megan McArdle writes: “This is exactly what the study does not find.” Like McArdle, I read the study, and can confirm this. Or perhaps Yglesias can direct us to the part of the study where he read that.…

If Yglesias could see in this rigorous study something that isn’t actually there, does that mean there’s a chance that the motivations he assigns to ObamaCare opponents — they “want to deny life‐​saving medical care to the poor” — may not comport to reality either?
