President Obama has found a new tactic in his bid for re election.
Beating the drum for Obama -- the lot he says is the right thing to DO.
I'm running because I believe that nobody in America should go broke.
Just because they get sick.
-- -- -- -- -- And that may be just the problem the end game for Obama care is playing out in Massachusetts -- the legislature just passed a new law.
The takes government involvement in health care industry to new and disturbing levels.
Romney care the health care model Mitt Romney introduced six years ago has turned out to be way way too expensive.
Consider this Medicaid Romney care subsidies and subsidies public employee compensation.
Will together consumed 54% of the Commonwealth's budget in 2012.
Into -- 2001.
It was just 24%.
And here is the real kicker state health spending over the same period has jumped by 59%.
While education has fallen 15% police and firefighters eleven roads and bridges spending 23%.
In short -- care has transport Massachusetts into the biggest health care spender in the country and possibly the world.
When you look at the cost per person Massachusetts spends more than any other state or any industrialized.
Costs were 27%.
Higher than the average here in the US.
Even if you just that number for the State's higher wages and concentration of medical specialists that costs are still 15% higher.
Begin -- those sees the handwriting on the wall -- trying to cap costs.
Not by ending Romney care which should be the best solution but by making government more intrusive.
Doctors and hospitals will have to register with the new state bureaucracy which will track their spending and cost trends.
And that -- will write rules to contain spending at levels below and affiliation.
Health care providers won't be allowed to change their practices without approval from this board if doctors or hospitals overspend.

And as the Wall Street Journal points out today another government health care program Medicare.
Rewards hospitals -- have fewer re admissions.
Makes cents on the surface but in reality some of those hospitals with -- readmission cost score well because they have more patients die.
Tends to lower your readmission rates.
How about you with a result to orwellian for my taste and calls to mind the debate over death panels that occurred when Obama -- was being debated.
The health care system run by the government is one doomed to fail.
Ask yourself how -- -- the government do reading the General Services Administration or the US Postal Service for the department of energy's loan program.
Health care run by the government -- gotta be.
