My friends at the North Dakota Policy Council alerted me to yet another arrow that advocates of health care freedom have in their quiver: an interstate health care freedom compact. Coupled with lawsuits and variations on the Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act, interstate compacts form an interesting and perhaps successful action against an overreaching federal government.

Dr. Frankenstein’s monster popularly known as ObamaCare may have fundamentally threatened the balance of power between the federal government and the states, and the federal government and the citizen, as various commentators have noted. But it may also prove to be the high-water mark of centralization and politicization of life in this country.
