MA voters got to vote on Rmoneycare?? In your freakin' dreams, you
""In 1994 Mitt Romney ran for the U.S. Senate. His opponent: Ted Kennedy. During that campaign Romney was critical of the liberalism of his opponent even coining s term "Kennedy Country" as means of describing the devastation Kennedy's liberal social policies had wrought on the poor neighborhoods in Massachusetts.
He lost that election but won his next attempt at state wide office as Governor in 2002. He ran on the pledge that he would not saddle the people of the state with socialist tax-and-spend or an expansion of liberal social policies.
However soon after he was elected Romney began the drumbeat for socialized medicine. Three years later he signed RomneyCare into law. The voters of Massachusetts did not vote for RomneyCare as by his own admission he did not plan his socialized medicine scheme until after the 2002 election. Romney foisted it upon the citizenry without warning and without any prodding from his Democratic rivals.
However, guess who was in the forefront of lobbying the state legislature to get Romney's bill passed? Yes, Ted Kennedy. The same Senator who pushed for socialized medicine for many decades. This became a Romney-Kennedy production.

You again prove what an airhead you are, Carol. Repeat your lies, it's all you're capable of.
Massachusetts voted to pass Romneycare. Americans were given no voice and Republicans completely shut out of Obamacare.
Massachusetts is a small state and the population a small fraction compared to the entire nation.
Only 9% of the uninsured were not covered in Massachusetts. Over 3 million people will be added to government-run health care in 2014.
There's quite a big difference. But you have to have some modicum of perspective.
