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


OK, this is going to be somewhat logical, so it will go way over your head, but you can try to understand.

In the simplest scenario.

Assume a state puts up a poor plan. Not that any government function could ever do that of course, this is sheer fantasy speculation of course.

What would be the first government response? Well history tells us, defend expand and claim it will work eventually.

What if there is a similar state, right next door, and that state has this awesome plan that works!

Very different than federal

Now let's take a different scenario.

Assume both states have good plans, because government after all, is infallible. Now there is this new feature, actually there are two ways of implementing it. One state tries one, the other uses the other way. One of those two ways works better! Less good state sees results and voila -- changes. If federal ? Hey that worked, cool -- no improvement.

The entire concept is about competition and why competition yields the best results and is key to the whole concept of 'best practices'

That anyone does not get this, is just really silly.

But then again, I have read about the right wing media being the reason that Obama only slightly won the debate, after all this is PA
