So, we Massachusetts residents did our part to drive a stake into obamacare. We worked the phones, knocked on doors, put signs in our yards and then exercised our right to vote. In exit polling, 52% or respondents stated that a main reason for their vote was obamacare. It is a big part of why Scott Brown was elected.
So, now I ask, if this is the case is it not time to revisit our state-run healthcare? By all accounts the costs are out of control and it is not sustainable. We need to now focus on candidates that will tackle this issue for our state.
We need reform. Issues such as tort reform and changes to pre-existing conditions are important. But we cannot continue the way it is currently.
