Is implementing Romneycare state by state a good idea? Given the issues we have to consider when looking at healthcare, like moving across state lines, pre-existing conditions, etc., it seems like having 50 different sets of health care laws would be wildly inefficient.

It seems that Romney is saying that Romneycare is good because it is only on a state basis. Does this make any sense?

I've long believed that states should not be in charge of health care nor insurance. Possibly for the same reasons you do.

However, there are plans working in 3-4 states now. Not to say they wouldn't be better if residents were free to chose other plans not in state.

But Obamacare ends up being the responsibility of the states in a very large way. States know that, which is why they dread it.
