Loyola discusses the federal government’s usurpation of state authority to regulate health care, the resultant failure of those interventions and mandates, why health care regulatory authority should be reserved to the states, and a mechanism for rolling back this federal overreach.“The relentless expansion of the federal government into every area of our lives is incompatible with a Constitution based on local self-government, economic freedom, and shared sovereignty among state, federal, and local authorities. Health care regulation should be returned to the states, along with the tax revenues the federal government sucks away to fund its misguided programs, in order to ultimately lead to accessible and affordable health care for Americans.”
