Massachusetts is a step closer to single-payer healthcare with a vote by that state’s Senate to enable a study to measure the cost of instituting a single-payer healthcare system. The Commonwealth’s House of Representatives will take up the issue next.
My prediction is Connecticut will also visit the issue but not in 2018. Look for single-payer healthcare to be front and center for the new governor in 2019, especially if a Democrat wins and they are the majority party in the General Assembly. Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Dan Drew has already come out for single-payer healthcare.
But Massachusetts has already moved a step ahead of Connecticut. And I thought RomneyCare was the answer.
