This is a bit misleading. Health care reform is a "wicked problem" to a large extent because we've chosen to make it more complex than necessary. More aggressive and administratively simpler reforms such as a single payer systme are considerably less "wicked" than the bureaucratic kludge of ACA. This fact is clearly recognized by responsible people, including, for example, the present governor of Vermont and the government of Taiwan, where a single payer system was implemented relatively rapidly. While health care issues are difficult and a problem in every industrialized nation, what makes them particularly difficult in the USA is not the intrinsic problems of health care reform but the dysfunctional nature of our political system. The real "wicked problem" is a political system that doesn't reflect the needs of ordinary Americans.
