Dont forget, it was designed and adopted before universal health care became a partisan issue nationwide.<quoted text>
The people of MA voted for it and by all reports (and polls) are very happy with it.
Imagine if we could of adopted something similar to that nationwide a few years ago, before the republicans decided they didnt like Obama, and as a result declared health care a partisan issue. My guess is that they would of passed something VERY similar to ObamaCare.
What changed? The political atmosphere - not the content of the health plan.
