Save Our State of Massachusetts
There’s not a lot of sentiment in between with these two, but some that once may have loved Ann Coulter are growing wary of her incessant cheer leading for Romney, and lambasting of Gingrich regardless of which candidate they’re rooting for. Not that Martha Coakley and Obama don’t devotedly stump for each other as well, but here’s Ann’s latest pounding the table for Romney Three cheers for RomneyCare, and to some degree she’s joining ranks with Coakley in singing Romneycare’s praise?!? Stranger bedfellows cannot be imagined, but all is fair in love and war, especially when it suits your agenda. Learn all about Massachusetts’ Health Care Success Story and Why the Affordable Care Act is Constitutional even before the Supreme Court of the United States chimes in.
On February 8, 2012, 11:00am – 12:00pm, you can join the Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden and Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley for a conversation about the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act and the success of the Massachusetts health care law it is modeled on.
Attorney General Coakley worked to implement the successful Massachusetts health care reform law that former Gov. Mitt Romney signed in 2006, which allowed the state to achieve near-universal health coverage, even as coverage declined throughout the rest of the country. Drawing on her experience in Massachusetts, Coakley will explain how the Massachusetts framework that provides full access to insurance, ensures that individuals will take responsibility for their health care, and makes health care affordable to all individuals played an essential role in successfully providing unparalleled access to health care coverage for Massachusetts residents.
Attorney General Coakley and Tanden will discuss why the Affordable Care Act’s adoption of the Massachusetts framework fits comfortably within the United States’ constitutional authority.
