    Romney’s Big Healthcare Lie

    Posted by Daniel Horowitz (Diary)
    Thursday, January 26th

    Romney was never able to answer why the same market intervention and distortions – mandates, subsidies, and Medicaid – which form the bedrock of Obamacare , supposedly worked so well in Massachusetts. The reason he couldn’t answer the question is because Romneycare was a complete failure. It is the canary in the coal mine for Obamacare.

    The reality is that Romneycare did not merely affect the 8% that were uninsured, as Romney has suggested; it punished everyone with record high premiums. It is incontrovertibly clear that MassCare has engendered the highest premiums in the nation,while dumping thousands of people onto federally funded Medicaid and disincentivizing people not to earn more money.

    Study: RomneyCare Killed 18,000 Massachusetts Jobs

    Written by Thomas R. Eddlem

    The study concluded that the Massachusetts health care reform (HCR) signed by Mitt Romney in 2006 has:

    driven total health insurance costs up

    by [between] $3 billion and $6.1 billion;

    caused Massachusetts to employ between 15,551 and 21,422 fewer people;

    slowed the growth of disposable income per capita by $376; and

    reduced investment in Massachusetts

    by between $21.28 million and $29.33 million.

    In short, federal subsidies for Medicare and Medicaid have kept RomneyCare afloat in Massachusetts, and prevented even worse job losses.
