Today’s Boston Herald reviewed the results of findings made by Suffolk University’s Beacon Hill Institute concerning the effects of Romneycare on the state of Massachusetts. It should come as no surprise that Romneycare is an abysmal failure.
In a nut shell,
The Beacon Hill Institute study found that, on average, Romneycare:
• cost the Bay State 18,313 jobs;
• drove up total health insurance costs in Massachusetts by $4.311 billion;
• slowed the growth of disposable income per person by $376; and
• reduced investment in Massachusetts by $25.06 million.
What an accomplishment, Governor Romney.
In a link in the Boston Herald article you can find the entire study results, should you care to read them.
Of course, all Americans will be subject to Obamacare in 2014. And, Obamacare is patterned after Romneycare.
Can anyone say “higher medical costs than we now have, including higher insurance premiums, and, fewer Americans covered by employer provided health insurance”?
Can anyone say “more jobs shipped overseas”?
More to the point, can anyone say that Obamacare is good for either this country, or its citizens?
