Our Commonwealth has always been in the vanguard when it comes to improving the lot of Americans, for example:
– The Revolution started here
– First to abolish slavery, and declare blacks and whites equal, and became the hub of the abolitionist movement
– First to legalize labor unions and collective bargaining
– First to recognize gay marriage
Sadly, we will soon pass the mantle of “most progressive state” to Vermont: yesterday the Vermont House voted, 89 to 47, to advance towards a single-payer health care system.
Instead of being the first state to embrace world-class health care financing, Mass will be remembered as the foisters of RomneyObamaCare upon the nation.
In related news, hundreds of doctors are considering moving to Vermont.
Good luck, Vermont! By choosing to attack exorbitant health care instead of funding them from the taxpayer’s pocket (RomneyObamaCare), you are not only helping your citizens directly, you will drive down the cost of doing business and thus attract more industry.
