Massachusetts

As seen below, Massachusetts’ citizens very strongly want their health care law replaced. The MA law ("Romneycare") was implemented in that state in 2006. Romneycare is the state version of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 ("Obamacare") that is being implemented in 2010 through 2018 with the bulk of its provisions implemented in 2014 and at least a few major provisions not being implemented until 2018.

 


 255,213 Americans in Massachusetts
(67% of 381,352 Americans)
vote YES in support of single-payer health care,
Improved Medicare for All

The ballot question, as worded in 2010, when the words "like Medicare" were added: “Shall the representative from this district be instructed to support legislation that would establish health care as a human right regardless of age, state of health or employment status, by creating a single payer health insurance system like Medicare that is comprehensive, cost effective, and publicly provided to all residents of Massachusetts?” (Bolding was added.)

Strong Opposition to
the national version of the Massachusetts Law

 Life-long Democrats helped Scott Brown win
as part of the hatred of a mandate to purchase health insurance.

How much do the citizens of Massachusetts dislike their health care law?

Enough that life-long Democrats worked very hard to replace the former seat of Democratic U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy with Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown.

Why? Because the Affordable Care Act of 2010, often called Obama’s health care law, is largely based on the Massachusetts law, which is a health insurance mandate to purchase private health insurance. The citizens of Massachusetts wanted to make a contribution to stopping the Affordable Care Act of 2010 from becoming law.

See the Reuters article by Trudy Lieberman for more about this topic.


We do not want mandated insurance and
forced assignments of insurance on individual Americans.

We want the peace of mind
of having no major medical bills.
