The Health Care Choice Act

I had not previously heard of this proposed legislation.  It is called, The Health Care Choice Act, sponsored by Rep. John Shadegg of Arizona, and would increase the availability of private  health care plans.   The New Republic online has an article by Jonathan Cohn (free with registration) discussing this proposed legislation that exposes some of its drawbacks - apparently it would take away any state regulation of insurance.  For an excellent and extra commentary on the Act and the New Republic article, see the Washington Monthly.  [bm]
