Universal National Healthcare now exists...

Cambridge Health Alliance and Boston Medical Center are the two largest safety-net hospitals in the state, serving large numbers of poor patients covered by MassHealth, and they will receive $120 million of the $160 million in stimulus money going to hospitals in the fiscal year beginning in July. Both had said they would eliminate jobs, close programs, and consolidate other services after state budget cuts were made last fall.
You know that train wreck of an experiment in universal health care initiated by the State of Massachusetts? Well, with the application of Federal Bail Out funds, the failed experiment is now a national experiment.
