Massachusetts is about to go bankrupt

And run off all the business left in the State.

More on that insurance scam plan from Massachusetts, this time from the USAToday coverage:

The plan hinges in part on two key sections: the $295-per-employee business assessment and a so-called “individual mandate,” requiring every citizen who can afford it to obtain health insurance or face increasing tax penalties.

Liberals typically support employer mandates, while conservatives generally back individual responsibility.

“The novelty of what’s happened in this building is that instead of saying, ‘Let’s do neither,’ leaders are saying, ‘Let’s do both,'” said John McDonough of Health Care for All. “This will have a ripple effect across the country.”

The state’s poorest — single adults making $9,500 or less a year — will have access to health coverage with no premiums or deductibles.

Those living at up to 300% of the federal poverty level, or about $48,000 for a family of three, will be able to get health coverage on a sliding scale, also with no deductibles.
