Massachusetts' new Healthcare Cost Containment law has hit the national airwaves for all the wrong reasons. It is bad policy that will not protect the consumer, will not preserve medical care, and will not prevent cost increases.
It is almost certain that, as a result of this bill, consumer choice will be restricted, quality of medical care will suffer, and costs will rise to new heights.
What is needed is not centralization of healthcare, but a free-market solution that will allow for greater competition and greater consumer choice.
If elected, I will work to repeal this bill and encourage real healthcare reform that will lead to real results.
