Former State House News Service, now POLITICO health care reporter, Kyle D. Cheney has a devastating piece on how Obamacare broke the Massachusetts Health Connector. You can read it here:
Massachusetts’s experiment with health reform – led by Gov. Mitt Romney in 2006 – has long been a White House talking point about what America could look like under Obamacare.
