A model for universal health care?
This link is to a story on American Public Media's Marketplace program. It discusses the structure and implications of Commonwealth Care, Massachusetts' new health care initiative. Governor Romney has touted it as a success and the great result of compromise from all players in health care. One of the more important points that this story makes is that Mr. Romney's support and role in creating this initiative greatly changes the health care debate for Republicans. One of the major Republican sticking points is the perception that requiring small businesses with more than ten employees will greatly harm them. It will be interesting to see how Mr. Romney uses this in his campaign and how other primary candidates will counter.
