The Great Experiment peels back the heated rhetoric over the federal health care law and provides a serious examination of how the relationship between states and the federal government impacts health care policy decisions. The book is about much more than examining a single state experiment, or the immediate questions that may arise during a presidential campaign. Make no mistake about it: The Great Experiment lays out a market-oriented blueprint for the next decade–and seeks to do it with the wisdom and balance that come from observing and analyzing a variety of state and federal policy experiences.
I am an Air Force Veteran of the Cold War and the First Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm). I live on a wooded hilltop with my two rescued dogs, Yogi and Ranger, and two rescued cats, White Sox, and Mittens. We share my land with several deer, a family of red-tailed hawks, a barn owl, numerous squirrels (that my dogs and the cat tree together), a family of pileated woodpeckers and numerous cottontail rabbits, and an occasional opossum or raccoon.
