Classic Example of How Not to Do Health Reform

The article from The Boston Globe is about how many people have signed up for the new, Massachusetts sponsored health plans. It seems a lot of people have signed up for it. Unfortunately, the example "family" they use is exactly the type of people that should be subsidized by the taxpayers of the fair Commonwealth. The key sentence is: "Andre Bastien Jr. is among those the insurance initiative has helped. The Milton man was without coverage for four months earlier this year after leaving a job to set up a mortgage company with his wife."

He may have had coverage through his job, but he quit it to go into business for himself. He either could not or would not buy insurance for this company. Now he gets it through the state. Anyway, see Nearly 300,000 in Mass. seek coverage under healthcare law
