PETER SUDERMAN: The States’ Failed Experiments: “The major provisions of ObamaCare have already been tried. And they don’t look good. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis famously envisioned the states serving as laboratories, trying ‘novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.’ On health care, that’s just what they’ve done. Like participants in a national science fair, state governments have tested variants on most of the major health care reforms Congress is considering. The results include dramatically higher premiums in the individual market, spiraling public costs, and reduced access to care. In other words, the reforms have failed.”
