Opinion: Reform Law, Mass. Overhaul ‘Radically Different’
Syndicated columnist Debra Saunders argues that President Obama's insistence that the federal health reform law was modeled after the Massachusetts health reform law that Mitt Romney signed in 2006 "tells you how unpopular Obamacare is." She adds that "the philosophies behind the federal plan and the Massachusetts plan are radically different." According to Saunders, "Romney set out to offer a plan that would address the state's" uninsured rate "without putting undue burden on state employers," while the federal reform law "is mandate heaven."
