Rush Limbaugh talked about this article on his radio show today. I found it and thought we should all read it so that we can see what ObamaCare is going to do to America. The Massachusetts health care program is a foreshadowing of ObamaCare.
The Massachusetts governor, Deval Patrick, has imposed price controls on health care premiums charged by Massachusetts health care providers. As a result, the health care providers went on strike. Gov. Patrick is demanding insurers begin offering policies as of today, at the old rates, until the situation is settled next Monday.
Gov. Patrick claims that the health insurance companies are greedy. What's funny is that Gov. Patrick's own Attorney General and insurance regulators have concluded that...
...the reason Massachusetts premiums are the highest in the nation is the underlying cost of health care, not the supposed industry abuses that Mr. Patrick and his political mentor President Obama like to cite.
Eventually, the health insurance companies in Massachusetts are going to go out of business. This will result in government-run single-payer health insurance. Exactly what Obama plans for all of us in America.
The Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, may be running for office in the fall against Charlie Baker, the former head of a health care company called Harvard Pilgrim. Guess who signed on to be Governor Patrick's consultant in the 2010 election...David Plouffe. You remember him, don't you? He's the guy who ran Obama's presidential campaign. Hmmm......
The short article is worth the read.
