Lawmakers in Washington have dithered and debated while the health insurance crisis has grown increasingly worse. At last count, skyrocketing costs have forced 47 million Americans to forego insurance and put their health at risk. The majority of those work in small businesses. At the state level, however, a number of progressive governors, have taken action.

Obviously, a piecemeal, state-by-state approach is not the best way to go. The health care crisis is a national problem that clearly requires a national solution. So why are a growing number of states tackling this problem without Washington's help? A close look at one program in Pennsylvania provides an eye-opening answer.
