Insurance Costs

I commented on Steve Peterson's blog that I opposed heath care reform in principal, on the grounds that no designed system can produce equivalent output to the spontaneous competitive order.

This is a little rash; there are aspects of health care that can be legitimately reformed to remove the influence of planning, and that would potentially have great effect. This article discusses what seems obvious: legalizing the selling of insurance across state borders. I was, frankly, unaware that the restriction existed. But now that I know, it seems a pretty compelling alternative suggestion for lowering costs.
