Skip to comments.Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, Sen. Ed Markey lead resistance to US Senate health care bill

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker cautioned that a health care bill proposed by U.S. Senate Republicans would cost 264,000 state residents their health coverage and have a cumulative negative impact of more than $8.2 billion on the state by 2025, while Sen. Edward Markey described defeating the bill as the legislative fight of his life.
In a letter to the state's all-Democrat Congressional delegation, Baker, a Republican, wrote that the bill would "increasingly strain the state's fiscal resources, result in greater numbers of individuals without insurance and destabilize the commercial insurance market." He separately joined Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe in urging the Senate to give state officials more time to review the bill before it is brought to the floor for a pivotal vote.

Good! Full repeal baby!
In honor of your screen name, a guava and cheese puff pastry recipe that sounds delish:
Baker is a buffoon.
NO REPEAL hurts 33 million children!
Thank you!! Guava Cheese Puffs are delicious!
Meanwhile, everybody else in Massachusetts has seen their health insurance bills go through the roof.
I do not think that Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker knows what he is talking about. He seems to be making bad assumptions about the performance of the proposed new health care law. He seems to be making up a worse case scenario to gain political capital.
It would be constructive if Baker would clearly describe his concerns and what fixes can be made to the proposed legislation. Otherwise he is just blowing smoke and looking just as stupid as the MSM! Is he trying to look smart?
Hey, I’m ex-Bay Stater myself.
Whatever happened to Massachusetts’ own RomneyCare?
Has it been completely absorbed in ObamaCare now?
Is the average citizen happy with the cost of Obamacare there?
