I’m not crying but I’m combining this mentally with other fed heavy votes that would be fine if states could continue with the ability to fine tune for specific needs but with that ability stripped from them, I suspect their roles will become administrative arms of the fed, in the name of easing regulations. But maybe not. Don’t worry about people crying. Just look objectively at possibilities as if you were buying a used car.
Another example: Cross-state health insurance is something that should’ve been done ages ago. When I worked for Schering (Pharma), one of my big projects involved customizing weekly interactive applications in Excel that ( wrote and represented EVERY script, every doctor, every health plan… and there was a LOT…. and all a little different.
But how it’s done makes a huge difference. States should be allowed to be gatekeepers for their own people.
