One more quick thought on that Massachusetts poll

One more - I hope final - quick thought on that poll of Massachusetts voters. It’s interesting that in a State which has an operational version of Obamacare (for lack of a better term), those who voted for Obama in 2008 and either voted for Brown in 2010 or just stayed home really, really want a public option and really don’t like the individual mandate. I wonder if this is largely an effect of the rising health care costs in Massachusetts: these voters resent being forced to pay those high costs and hope government competition would reduce them.
