Just seems odd that the state house enacts a really bad health care law where the powers that be sold us out to the insurance companies and now DiMasi gets a job in the health care field.Anyone see a connection???Citizens will be fined $900.00 this year and double that next year.DiMasi nor anyone else in the state house cares about the citizens on Massachusetts.We need chapter 58 thrown out with the bums.

I couldn't disagree more anyone who doesn't have health insurance should be fined more than 900.00 bucks!!! These dirt bags mooch off all of us who do pay.. As far as that Crook Dimasi goes thank god he is gone. He shot down the Casino plan (which costs the state millions) and lead the charge for gay marriage..SEE YEA LATER!!

Dimasi, Wilkerson, and Turner are simply the tip of the Mass Pol iceberg. Duval and the hundreds of folks he's put on the state payroll are of the same ilk.

Ironic that the Governor and Attorney general,as well as a large number of Legislatures, had nothing but praise for DiMassi a few weeks ago, and are still praising him. Nobody dared go against him, or face DiMassi's wrath. IMHO, he'll get away with a small fine and never goto jail.
