Shut down the Massachusetts Manipulation

Shut down the Massachusetts Manipulation

The Wall Street Journal on Friday highlighted the State of Massachusetts  manipulation of the Medicare formula that delivers an extra $230 million dollars to Massachusetts. This action robs other states including Wisconsin of the same amount. It is a wonky maneuver that should be corrected.

The problem is the continuation of ground hog day on health care policy; this ground hog day is when Democrats say that ACA (Affordable Care Act) is the greatest invention since sliced bread and the Republicans say it is the demise of Western Civilization as we know it. Neither are true, but the beat goes on, and on…and on.

The Congress should wake up and make reasonable corrections. The Massachusetts manipulation is an obvious shell game and needs to be shut down.
