healthcare cont’d

I still haven’t heard back about my application to Indiana’s state-subsidised health insurance, but I heard a story on Morning Edition this morning about a Massachusetts law that requires all state residents to have health insurance or face a tax penalty.  There is a plan in place to make health insurance more accessible to the uninsured and to subsidize the costs of insurance for people below 3x the poverty level.  Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton supports an “individual mandate” similar to the Massachusetts plan.
