Governor decries U.S. limits on Massachusetts healthcare
Boston Globe, February 27, 2008
Speaking on Capitol Hill, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick told Congress that the Bush administration has made it virtually impossible to expand health insurance coverage to more moderate-income children, and has asked lawmakers to intervene. Patrick accused the administration of essentially reneging on its commitment to let the state cover families with incomes up to $52,800 for a family of three. Under the guidelines, the income limit is $44,000.
