Residents: RomneyCare a Failure

Rasmussen polling finds that only 26% of Massachusetts residents think the health care reform in that state was a “success”, compared with 37% calling in a failure.

The Cato Institute previously reported on some of the reasons why RomneyCare had been such a bitter failure. And the Independence Institute has a video showing the dangers of individual mandates in health care, such as we see in Massachusetts.

Unfortunately, many in Harrisburg and Washington see Massachusetts, with its individual mandate, government run “connector” and increased taxpayer subsidies for insurance for the middle class, to be the model for reform.
