Aspen Ideas Festival: Grover Norquist on states as policy labs

Grover Norquist says we should encourage the states to experiment with policy changes on everything from marijuana laws and taxes to prison reform, guns and health care. Twenty-four states are in GOP control and 13 are controlled by Democrats. Norquist says we should let the good ideas, and the bad ones, flower in the states where there is no partisan gridlock. He spoke at the 2014 Aspen Ideas Festival in an event moderated by Mickey Edwards.
