It’s a sort of corporatist vision. Health care unions, insurance companies, government, universities all represented on the board. Mussolini would approve!

Maybe, the problem lies not so much with the law that was passed ... but rather the interpretation and implementation of it by those individuals chosen to the administer it. Don't get me wrong, most laws do have their flaws and blemishes, however how they are administered is where "the rubber mets the road."
I'm not from Massachusetts but I remember when this legislation was proposed by Governor Romney, he presented 'his' plan and then the Legislature made their changes and passed 'their' plan. The differences being slight or great I'm not sure, although Gov. Romney vetoed portions of the legislation (Line Item Veto). Then the Legislature over-rode his vetos.
The people put in place to administer a statute have far reaching effects, especially when they are appointed but also if they are elected to be sure. In this case the Board appears to be appointed by the Governor. I'm guessing these members were not the ones appointed by Romney when he was in office.
Does the Dem State Legislature have to fix it, yes ... do they want to change anything other than the deficit it created, unknown.
