I Could Have Told You This - Cost of MA State Health Care Plan to Double in 3 Years
I guess The Boston Globe is ignoring the Super Bowl. They have a nice article for tomorrow stating that the current estimate for the state's new mandatory health care plan will double in three years. Imagine that? Like Tennessee found out the hard way, if you try to insure everybody at a high level it gets expensive. See the story here. Part of the problem is that 169 K people have already signed up, more then was estimated ever would use it. It has been in existence for less than one year.
