CATO On Romney-Care

In today's climate, it may be the best conservatives can hope for. But that isn't stopping CATO from criticizing:

Although the legislation, as Stuart Altman put it, "is not a typical Massachusetts–Taxachusetts, oh–just–crazy–liberal plan," there is enough "bad" and "ugly" in the mix to raise serious concerns, particularly when the desire to overregulate the health insurance market appears to be hard–wired into Massachusetts policymakers' DNA.

If we want to make health insurance more affordable and avoid the "bad" and the "ugly" of the Massachusetts plan, Congress or, barring that, individual states should consider a "regulatory federalism" approach.
