As the New York Times, CNN and Obama supporters have repeatedly told us, the model for ObamaCare is RomneyCare--the Massachusetts system for "universal" medical insurance. It's a government-run program. It's subsidized by taxpayers. And, we were promised, by giving everyone coverage, costs would go down. That's what the O-bots are about to shove down our throats in Washington, so let's check in with today's Boston Globe-Democrat to see how well it's working for us canaries here in the ObamaCare coal mine: Or to use a little doctor's office lingo on you: "Ouch!" In just the past year, with inflation driving prices down 1 percent, health care costs in Massachusetts went UP 5 percent. And we pay more for our insurance than any other state in the country. AND we pay more in taxes than anyone else thanks to our state-run "Commonwealth Care" system, which was supposed to cost $100 million a year, but in fact took around $700 million of the current state budget. Here's the painfully ironic quote of the day: That's right, folks. Our version of ObamaCare has only been in place for TWO YEARS, and it's already 600% over the original budget. This is shocking news to the Boston Globe-Democrat, which supported an even larger, more expensive and more government-centric version of RomneyCare. But the Wall Street Journal and others have been writing about this for months. Here was their conclusion back in March, when the news wasn't as bad as it is today: And remember: The only people who DON'T want to repeat this disaster at the national level are racists.
