On May 9, 2011 Kaiser Health News reveals a study by the Massachusetts Medical Society that cites longer wait times for patients under RomneyCare, up to a month and a half for non-emergency appointments. Long waits for health care are a trademark attribute of government-controlled health care. What is particularly concerning is that this problem will soon not be confined to the borders of Massachusetts as the Affordable Care Act is, admittedly by the administration, modeled after RomneyCare.
This news furthers the Foundation’s conviction that government control over health care is antiquated and ineffective. True health care reform for Texas and the country must be achieved by the innovation and entrepreneurialism that comes with individual liberty in the marketplace.
