Repeal It? Wouldn’t be the First Time

National Review has a good story of how Kentucky passed health care mandate like those contained in the new federal law, including guaranteed issue and community rating, in 1994. As in New York and Massachusetts, the cost of insurance skyrocketed.

But Kentucky learned from its mistakes, changing many of the new regulations in 1998, and fully repealing them in 2003.

Yet another example of how Congress can learn from the failed health care experiments of the states.
