The Love of Models

As you may know, the idea that climate change is real, is heavily influenced by human factors and that it can be mitigated through proactive change is based on a number of scientific models which have looked at loads of evidence. These models take historical trends and, extrapolating into the future, predict what future temperatures and weather patterns look like. Greens have pointed to these models as "proof" that we're headed for catastrophe.

Why then doesn't the Left use similar methods to determine what the impact of 1,000 pages of laws will do to the healthcare system in 5,10, 15 years? Neither the administration nor Congressional Democrats are seriously analyzing the potential impact of 1,000 pages of law. They are having difficulty finding time to read the law much less model the scenarios it produces.
