"Jon Huntsman Explains His Past Flirtation With The Individual Mandate"

Via Sam Stein, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman explains that “market-based” solutions should serve as a model for the nation: “When you are deliberating something as important as health care reform you look and analyze every conceivable option,” he said. “[Y]ou look at everything, you analyze every possible approach, you bring in the experts and then you make a decision. And our decision was to move forward with a market-based model. And I do believe that that’s likely where this country is going longer term. Other states are going to look at what we’ve done and take a chapter or two.”
