After visiting Boston, part of me has a fantasy of moving to MA. Then I read posts like yours (and articles like this) and realize even though I could survive being surrounded by liberals, we could not financially survive. Can’t even get a shack for the price of our small 1200 sq. foot house anywhere within an hour of BOS.
Don’t move to Boston.
I had to move back to Boston. As part of that move, I’m on Romneycare. It costs me $250 less per month for better insurance than I had in California.
I’m not promoting Romneycare. Just telling you what the numbers worked out to be.
My own, personal advice: DON’T come to Massachusetts.
I’d leave if I had someplace to go where there were friends and family and, just as important, a significant ratio of conservatives.
I’m old enough now that I have one foot in the grave, but this is no place for someone starting out, or even in middle age.
Don't even THINK of moving to Red England; especially Assachsuetts. It's a 'tar baby'...you move there; then you can't get away. My wife and I had some relatively mild medical issues which have now become life-threatening due to the STRESS of dealing with the people. (Why am I here? The same reason other southerners are here...frickin' in-laws.) I do not wish to die on Red England soil, but I fear with each passing day that I will never get away.
Save yourself...and your family.
