^^^ It's instances such as above, where people who (a) don't even know what a "torte" [sic] is call for its reform, and (b) know damn-near doodly squat about the Constitution (Art. 1,8,3. and the interstate commerce clause ring a bell?) clamor for free competition between states. Sure, those are "easier" options. Hell, if we're looking for that, let's just mandate that doctors must, effective immediately, put their lab coats on left arm first. No risk; no cost...ultimately, no societal benefit.
That you actually propose "torte" reform as a solution to the healthcare issues we face in this country suggests to me that the debate for meaningful reform is already taking place between the know-nothings and the loons.
Let's hope that a more educated conversation in taking place outside the media sphere.
