In this week's issue, I wrote an article recounting the panel discussion and forum that the Texas Public Policy Foundation had on health and the 10th Amendment yesterday. As a part of that article, I dicussed the health insurance exchange that the State of Utah set up. In a 1000 word article, it's difficult to give a complete explanation to this interesting and novel concept. One of the speakers at the TPPF event, the Heritage Foundation's Edmund Haislmeier wrote a detailed paper describing and praising Utah's experiment. I have posted a link to the paper and highly recommend it to our readers. Reading this paper dramatically improved my understanding of what was discussed at the TPPF forum.
In the interest of equal time, the Cato Insitute's Michael F. Cannon also appeared at the forum and is also a prolific writer. A selection of his recent writings can be viewed at his bio page on the Cato Institute website.
Time Warner Cable subscribers can view the entire panel discussion with video-on-demand Channel 888.
Also, this week's TPPF Texas Policy Cast features former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz discussing the 10th Amendment and can be downloaded here.
