Massachusetts health insurance explanation in under 10 min!
If you couldn't afford it before or didn't have an employer that would buy it for you- you might want to know. If you think mandated health insurance will make people healthy you might want to know. The Obamacare plan was based on the MA version in case you are curious to what you are going to be forced to spend per month... Just punch in a MA zip code to take a gander FYI. Here's the link for the connector, which is two, one for those who have less of an income and one for those people who make over a certain amount of money... 67 G for a family of 3. Easy to see what you might be paying, just punch in a MA zip code, and take a look. Yes having your child on your insurance til he is 26 is a great idea, and so is not getting turned away for having a condition, among other benefits, however do you really want another mortgage payment to do it and how is it affordable for the average people? http://www.pbs.org/wnet/need-to-know/health/video-the-massachusetts-mandate/13981/ https://www.mahealthconnector.org/portal/site/connector this would be the site you would put your info in to find a plan through the MA connector. consequently, we've been approached by salesmen offering us a 'deal' -- which happens to be the same exact price, as MA so I'm not sure what kind of a deal that is. Or what kind of a deal that is for anyone at this juncture. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/10/health-care-reform-part-time-work_n_1952455.html http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/28/us/massachusetts-health-insurance-mandate-stirs-dissent.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 here are a variety of opinions, and articles, and the best thing to do would be check it out for yourself. :) as i have.

Close of person filling out info on the Health Connector STORYLINE: As state governments across the US figure out how to implement President Obama's Affordable Care Act, many people are looking at the US state of Massachusetts for possible answers. Massachusetts was the first US state to attempt Universal Health Care. "The whole model is working really well, again we have over 98 percent of our residents insured," said Glen Shor, of the Massachusetts Health Connector, the governing body that manages healthcare. The biggest winners here are the working poor, those who didn't have health insurance through their jobs, but also didn't qualify for medicaid. Handyman Jose Hernandez of Holyoke was laid off after 14 years, then hurt his back. Because of the individual mandate, he was able to see a doctor at no cost. "My back is I feel good now, so pretty soon I'll be starting a job and everything will fall in place," said Hernandez. But, like the rest of the country, Massachusetts has struggled to contain the growing cost of healthcare. Much of the money now going to health care in the state budget used to go to education. Also suffering from the rising costs are some businesses.

Santorum has a spirited argument with Romney over RomneyCare, the health care system he was responsible for as governor of Massachusetts. Santorum claims it is the same as ObamaCare, but Romney tries to make it clear that they are different. A possible slip from Romney is when he says "it's not worth getting angry about" (4:05).

Election News - Romney: Massachusetts Health Care Isn't "Perfect"
http://uselectionnews.org Former Massachusett's Governor Mitt Romney took the first step in fighting down some of the potential criticism he could draw from the state of Massachusett's health care plan if he decides to run for President in a speech over the weekend highlighting his wish to repeal the massive health care reform bill that was passed last summer, aka "Obamacare", bringing to light his support of state's individual rights, and declaring that the healthcare plan that he authored for his state was "not perfect". His words to that effect may have helped him earn back at least some of the support that he has lost in recent months as President Obama and his aides have repeatedly credited him and his state for the "ideas" behind the Obamacare health reform bill.

The Republican health care bill makes no sense
The bill doesn’t know what problem it’s trying to solve. For more Vox analysis: http://www.vox.com/2017/1/5/14179258/obamacare-repeal-republican-votes-trump You can read the bill here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/06/politics/house-republicans-obamacare-repeal-replace-text/ https://waysandmeans.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/03.06.17-AmericanHealthCareAct_Summary.pdf Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Republicans in the House have finally released a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare: the American Health Care Act. The GOP healthcare bill keeps some of the most popular parts of Obamacare, like letting young adults stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26 and requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions. But the Republican bill gets rid of the key element that made Obamacare work: the individual mandate. Now that people aren't required to have insurance, healthy people could leave insurance pools en masse, leaving sick people who are more expensive to cover. Hypocrisy is a minor sin in politics, but still, it is remarkable how much of it there is to be found in this legislation. A core Republican complaint when Obamacare was passed was that the law delayed many of its provisions in order to reduce public outcry and manipulate the CBO’s score. The GOP bill is similarly aggressive with such tricks, delaying changes to the Medicaid expansion until 2020 and pushing Obamacare’s tax on expensive insurance plans out until 2025. Because Republicans aren’t even trying to win Democratic votes, they’re stuck designing a bill that can wiggle through the budget reconciliation process (another thing they complained about Democrats doing). That means they can’t make major changes to insurance markets like repealing Obamacare’s essential benefit standards or allowing insurance to be sold across state lines. That last part is particularly striking, given that it was one of President Trump’s five demands in his speech last week. I’ve always been skeptical about the savings Republicans could wrest by changing those regulations, but now they can’t get those savings at all — which means sacrificing a key part of their theory of cost control. This bill has a lot of problems, and more will come clear as experts study its language, the Congressional Budget Office release its estimates, and industry players make themselves heard. But the biggest problem this bill has is that it’s not clear why it exists. What does it make better? What is it even trying to achieve? Democrats wanted to cover more people and reduce long-term costs, and they had an argument for how their bill did both. As far as I can tell, Republicans have neither. At best, you can say this bill makes every obvious health care metric a bit worse, but at least it cuts taxes on rich people? Is that really a winning argument in American politics? In reality, what I think we’re seeing here is Republicans trying desperately to come up with something that would allow them to repeal and replace Obamacare. This is a compromise of a compromise of a compromise aimed at fulfilling that promise. But “repeal and replace” is a political slogan, not a policy goal. This is a lot of political pain to endure for a bill that won’t improve many peoples’ lives, but will badly hurt millions.

#81 - Mitt Romney - Former Governor of Massachusetts & Republican Presidential Nominee Shares Advice
Guest Bio: Born in Michigan on March 12, 1947, Mitt Romney is the son of former Michigan Governor George Romney. He founded the investment firm Bain Capital and later ran for the Massachusetts Senate in 1994, losing to incumbent Ted Kennedy. Romney took over the Salt Lake Organizing Committee and helmed a successful 2002 Olympic Games. He became governor of Massachusetts in 2003 and made a run for the Republican nomination in the 2008 election, losing to candidate John McCain. Romney made a second run for the U.S. presidency in 2012, with U.S. Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his running mate, but was ultimately defeated by President Barack Obama in a tight race. The son of George Romney, a former governor of Michigan who ran for the Republican Party's presidential nomination in 1968 (he was defeated by Richard Nixon), Mitt Romney began his career in business. He worked for the management consulting firm Bain & Company before founding the investment firm Bain Capital in 1984. A decade later, in 1994, he ran for a seat in the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts but was defeated by longtime incumbent Ted Kennedy. Romney stepped into the national spotlight in 1999, when he took over as president of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee. He helped rescue the 2002 Winter Olympic Games from financial and ethical woes and helmed the successful Salt Lake City Games in 2002. Romney parlayed his success with the Olympics into politics when he was elected governor of Massachusetts in 2003. During Romney's term as governor, he oversaw the reduction of a $3 billion deficit. He also signed into law a health-care reform program to provide nearly universal health care for Massachusetts residents. After serving one term as governor, Romney declined to run for re-election and announced his bid for the U.S. presidency. He made it through Super Tuesday, winning primaries in Massachusetts, Alaska, Minnesota, Colorado, and Utah before losing the Republican nomination to Senator John McCain of Arizona. According to reports, Romney spent about $110 million on his campaign, including $45 million of his own money. Romney continued to keep his options open for a possible future presidential run. He maintained much of his political staff and political action committees and raised funds for fellow Republican candidates. In March 2010, Romney published the book No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, which debuted on The New York Times' best-seller list. At a farm in New Hampshire on June 2, 2011, Mitt Romney announced the official start of his campaign for the 2012 presidential election. During his campaign, Romney took many standard Republican positions on taxes, the economy and fighting terrorism, while consistently and vocally criticizing his opponent, Democrat President Barack Obama. Specifically, Romney denounced President Obama's health-care reform program—a stance that earned him criticism from the press, as the president's health-care plan is similar to the Massachusetts plan that Romney supported as governor. Additionally, throughout the 2012 presidential race, critics charged Romney with changing his position on several key issues, including abortion; Romney supported Roe v. Wade—the U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding a woman's right to an abortion—while campaigning for a Senate seat in 1994, but maintained an ardent pro-life stance throughout his 2012 campaign for the presidency.

What is universal health care?
The universal health care plan in Massachusetts costs $1.35 BILLION to cover 342 THOUSAND. Using the Massachusetts plan across the country would cost $1.2 TRILLION dollars each year if the government became the sole provider of health care for the more than 304,000,000 American citizens. And God knows how much more if we cover illegals. But that assumes the Federal government could manage the program as well as Massachusetts. If the Feds manage healthcare like they have managed the Cash for Clunkers program, imagine the consequences. When you consider that Medicaid provides care to 50 MILLION at a cost of $204 BILLION this year, then you can see that the Republicans, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have some basis for their concern! There's never an economy of scale with a government project. There's never a tipping point where costs improve. Costs always spiral out of control, there's invariably limited oversight, and when the government runs the project there's always political reasons to cover up the problems, hide the overruns and misstate the facts. Sure, this economist knows how to do political calculus. But let's be honest: wouldn't having people who read bills before they voted on them serve us much better? Tell truth to power.
