The Independence Institute on CO and MA

The Independence Institute recently published two analyses of state-level health care issues.

On 5/17/2011, Health Policy Solutions published Brian Schwartz's OpEd, "Parents should value children’s health more than sweets and booze".

Schwartz discusses numerous problems with the Colorado "Child Health Plan Plus" government welfare plan, including the perverse incentives and the crowding-out of private charity.

At the John Goodman NCPA blog on 5/18/2011, Linda Gorman asks "Is RomneyCare Different from ObamaCare?"

Gorman discusses some of the under-reported waste and mismanagement in Massachusetts under the Romney plan.

America does not need either of these plans expanded to the national level.
