Uh oh, more Poors healthy enough to vote. If this starts to trend nationwide, the GOP will be finished even earlier than predicted.

For those of you who refuse to read the article and instead comment on headlines...."Sommers cautioned that the findings may not apply nationwide. For one thing, Massachusetts has an abundance of doctors and hospitals, many of whom accept the newly insured. Under Obamacare, people whose new insurance is not accepted by many healthcare providers might have coverage on paper but not easy access to healthcare."
You know, one of the many arguments made during the Dem's "it works great in MA" hype.
