Liberals are now trying to sell the fantasy, and maybe even convince themselves, that ObamaCare isn’t among the reasons Senator-elect Scott Brown is headed to Washington. One of the only Massachusetts exit polls doesn’t corroborate the story: Rasmussen reports that 51% of voters on Tuesday were opposed and 47% in favor—41% “strongly opposed” and just 25% “strongly in favor.” Health care was the decisive factor for 56%.Perhaps that’s because Bay State residents know something the rest of the country doesn’t. In 2006, then GOP Governor Mitt Romney brought about a universal insurance plan that bears an uncanny resemblance to ObamaCare—and a meticulous new study confirms that the result has been high costs in return for minimal benefits.
