First of all, it's very silly to say "Republicans were for President Barack Obama's..." anything since he was an unknown with NO health care plan until very recently. I would also note that States are different from the Federal government.
From the comments...
This is entirely misleading. While it is true that Mandating Health Insurance coverage was considered necessary for MA's health reform to work, that is not the general consensus of what most Republicans think is right. Mandating the public to buy any private product is plain and simple an affront on free market trade. Romney, while being a good man is a Republican from a very liberal state, and really doesn't always represent the mainstream of what "Republicans think".
Massachusetts Treasurer Tim Cahill has a less rosy take on the MA plan... ?It has been a fiscal train wreck,? Cahill wrote in yesterday?s Wall Street Journal. Without federal assistance, ?Massachusetts would be broke.?
The independent candidate for governor said the state?s commitment to provide health insurance for all its citizens has cost more than anyone imagined.
Advocates told taxpayers that universal coverage would cost them $88 million a year, but in the first four years, the total tab was $4 billion, Cahill said.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
