POLL: Would a Court Decision Against 'Obamacare' Impact MA Regulations?
With the US Supreme Court hearing arguments this week about the Affordable Care Act, we want to know what you think about the 6-year-old state mandate.
In 2006 Governor Mitt Romney introduced Massachusetts to a bill mandating all citizens to have health care.
According to a Boston.com article the Massachusetts bill hasn't faced a legal challenge since it was passed.
The federal mandate, on the other hand, was challenged immediately and is before the US Supreme Court. According to the article there are people who say if the federal legislation is overturned the state mandate will be challanged as well.
Opponents of the bill say it is unconstitutional to force any citizen to buy a product, in this case health care.
Proponents of the bill argue that buy requiring everyone to have health care the cost will be driven down.
