How Massachusetts made out with Health care reform.
Good report from the Massachusetts Taxpayers foundation. Not dooms day as conservatives would have you think. Check it out. Lots of informative information. Stop the lies.
From the article
Massachusetts has achieved near universal health care coverage with only modest additional costs to state taxpayers, according to a new study released today by the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation (MTF).
The report, Massachusetts Health Reform Spending, 2006-2011: An Update on the “Budget Buster” Myth, found that state spending directly attributable to the health reform law grew from $1.04 billion in fiscal 2006 to $1.95 billion in fiscal 2011. The state’s share after accounting for federal reimbursements was $453 million, which equates to only 1.4 percent of the state’s $32 billion budget in fiscal 2011.
