Those three legs of the stool are what we put in place in Massachusetts and it’s worked incredibly well. We’ve covered about two thirds of our uninsured citizens, and we fixed the broken non-group health insurance market. We have taken a market, which was fundamentally broken, and cut the premiums in half over the first three years of the law’s implementation. We’ve done so on budget, according the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, and we’ve done so with broad public support.
