How is Health Care Reform Working Out for Middle Class Residents of Massachusetts?

After three years, health care reform in Massachusetts is going great if you love higher premiums. Although coverage has been increased to 96 percent, it has come at a high price for the middle class. President Obama and democrats claim this won't happen with national health care reform, but Massachusetts' experience indicates they are wrong. In addition to the middle class, seniors and the young should expect to pay more.

From the Chicago Tribune:
But there's another side to the story: Health insurance premiums for most residents are going up. Many middle-class people who had insurance before the overhaul see little change -- except that they're spending more on health care.

Here's my blogpost that links to a former Obama speechwriter who doesn't seem to be enjoying the Massachusetts government healthcare, either.
