The Big (healthcare) Dig

The Big (healthcare) Dig

Gee, I couldn’t see that coming. Massachusetts new universal health insurance law just gets better and better: “200,000 may need to get more insurance”. To recap, Gov. Mitt Romney and the state Legislature passed healthcare “reform” legislation last year that requires everyone in Massachusetts to have at least a minimum level of insurance. Those whose employers don’t provide it or who pay their own premiums would have to meet the minimums. Companies with more than a certain number of employees would have to offer insurance and people who don’t have insurance and can’t afford it would, of course, get it from the rest of the taxpayers.

Would it surprise you to find out that even before the law goes into effect we’re finding out they over-promised and will under deliver?

Rising costs and rising minimums
