Thanks, Mitt!!

Romney-Care in Massachusetts faces an ugly reality:

According to recent reports, the cost of Massachusetts' health insurance mandate will rise 85 percent, or $400 million, in 2009. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R), meanwhile, has been on the presidential campaign trail praising the program he put into place.

According to The Boston Globe, the cost increase is largely due to an increase in the number of people signing up for state-subsidized health insurance. State and federal taxpayers are likely to shoulder the cost increase.

IIRC, I'm a "Federal taxpayer."

If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free..P.J. O'Rourke

And if the Wisconsin Democrats have their way, this is what will happen in Wisconsi, probably even worse.

</sarcasm> You forgot that all-important tag there, Paul.

Maybe you haven't been paying attention to the news on the other side of the pond, but the doctors in Jolly Old England don't want to treat the sick anymore just so they can make their version of CubaCare "work".
