Tennessee: Maybe Not Such a Bad Idea

As a doctor, I strongly believe that people without health insurance die sooner. … State exchanges are the solution. They represent the federalist ideal of states as 'laboratories for democracy.' We are seeing 50 states each designing a model that is right for them, empowered to take into account their individual cultures, politics, economies and demographics. While much planning has yet to be done, we are already seeing a huge range in state models. I love the diversity and the innovation.
