Re "Fix regional disparities in health costs" (Editorials, March 17): You point out that health insurance premiums are lower in Southern California because of greater competition between insurance companies there (not a revolution in economic theory). If so, why is your proposed solution to raise premiums in Northern California? Why must reform always entail more government regulation? Why not try less regulation rather than the heavy hand of government in all of California?
