On Friday, President Obama’s website tracking health care reform published state-specific pages making the case for reform. CT’s numbers aren’t surprising, but it’s another source for info. Family premiums in CT approximately equal the entire wages of a full time minimum wage worker. Employers offering coverage is dropping, health care costs are skyrocketing, and the quality of our care is average.
My pet peeve with these collections from national sources (and it’s not just the White House) – we are not “Connecticuters”. I’ve lived in CT thirty four years and never heard that word. Are national reformers talking to anyone outside the beltway, beyond Massachusetts I mean?
