Not to brag on my fiance or anything, but I'm currently watching the Senate Finance Committee's testimony, and Senator John Cornyn just mentioned Peter's excellent article on the experience of the states with various health care reforms.    He not only entered it in the congressional record, but also asked Elmendorf whether he had considered the Massachusetts health experience--the very question I asked this morning.  Go Team McSuderman!

Sadly, Elmendorf's answer was vague, so I'm still not clear on whether, and how, he considered it.  But at least the question got asked . . .
