Hmmm, Romney Care.
Doctor shortages including 48 day waits for certain procedures/specialties. 40% of Mass budget for entitlements. Still 6% uninsured. An increase in premiums which already had the highest in the nation. Only about 55%-63% doctors accepting Medicaid patients. AND their exchanges produced higher premiums than expected. If nothing else Romney Care shouldn't be considered affordable or used to shill the ACA.
And Mass had a "smooth" rollout.

As much as I cant stand Romney (when he was gov here and while running for Pres), the guy is right. Unless you are a political bigot and cannot accept differing thoughts, you can see that hes right on this issue. On others? No so much, but like the rest of the country, its obvious the ACA is proving that even President Obama really didnt know much (or did know and lied) about this and continued to push it anyways. Not to mention felonous neglect by our elected officials when voting for this with quotes like "We have to pass it to see whats in it". That kind of blind loyalty is why we have the problems we have today. It wasnt properly debated/disected before rushing to vote it in.
Either way, both sides need to get together and work this out if its going to work.
