MassCare: No Brownie Points

FoIB Michael Cannon (director of health policy studies for the Cato Institute) has published a new study that shows some major cracks in MassCare. For example, it's significantly reduced the number of private insurer options in the Bay State, and it's cost a lot more than originally advertised (which we've long since noted). All the while failing to actually improve health.

By the way, that may also explain why " [f]ifty-two percent of Bay State voters who were surveyed as the polls closed [on Tuesday] said they opposed the federal health care reform measure and 42 percent said they cast their ballot to help stop President Obama from passing his chief domestic initiative."
