Skyrocketing costs, new taxes…. surprise!

Skyrocketing costs, new taxes…. surprise!

Mitt Romney and the exceedingly Democrat state Legislature in Massachusetts passed a universal health insurance coverage law before he left. It’s universal in that every business with more than 10 employees has to pay for insurance for employees, never mind whether they can afford or not, and every citizen has to have approved insurance, whether they can afford it or not.

Of course, if they can’t afford it, then that’s where the Massachusetts taxpayers step in. Oh, we were assured that no new taxes would have to be raised to keep the plan affordable— just like we were once assured that the Big Dig (the Central Artery/Third Harbor Tunnel project through the center of Boston) would only cost $5 billion and take 10 years to finish. It took 20 years and $15 billion and, by the way, leaks like a sieve and has already had one collapse that killed a driver.

So now, experts say the universal health care plan costs are skyrocketing and taxes will have to be raised in 2009 to cover it. Of course.
