One thing you are missing is that if it’s so popular and successful in MA, why haven’t any of the other states stepped forward to follow suit? It’s because while “coverage” increased, availability of care has retracted, and costs have gone up faster than if nothing had been done. This is why the Founding Fathers established our country the way they did; they wanted the feds to be involved in individuals’ and states’ affairs as little as possible and let the states determine what works for them. If states decide it’s a great program, it will be adopted by other states. If the other states feel it isn’t a good program, they won’t adopt it. It’s that simple.I actually think the Heritage foundation missed the mark, if they truly were the ones who came up with this ludicrous idea, and they should be ashamed of themselves. Besides, there is a massive difference between a single state acting alone and creating a massive entitlement system, and a federal government overstepping its bounds and creating a massive national entitlement system. Also. Caps Lock doesn’t prove your point; it actually detracts from it.
