I tuned into a number of Liberal outlets last night and this morning. Of course, the subject of the conversation is the victory in Massachusetts. Now, this is politics, so to listen to them spin this is expected, they HAVE to do that. Literally, it’s their job. And in this, the Republicans would be spinning in the same way had Brown lost.
But, what I heard the most last night and so far this morning is that the reason Massachusetts voted against this National Health Care is that they already have their own. And because they already have their own, why would they wanna pony up, tax themselves to provide a plan they already have? So, according to the Left, this isn’t a referendum on Health Care, it’s a case of not wanting to pay for something they already have.
This tactic is clever. It allows the Left to sidestep the referendum AND claim that Massachusetts really REALLY likes government provided health insurance.
I think the Left is wrong.
I think Massachusetts voted against Health care because they don’t like their version of it.
Massachusetts’ health law has had a smaller impact on insurance coverage levels and a much higher cost than supporters claim. Gains in coverage have been overstated by nearly 50 percent, while costs have been understated by at least one-third, and likely more. The law has done little to improve overall self-reported health, though it does
appear to have crowded out private health insurance and made Massachusetts a less attractive place to relocate, particularly for young people.
People view taxes as damage and route around it.
