Call it Romneycare or Obamacare, we need it

This morning’s edition of Raleigh’s News & Observer [1] reports that the number of North Carolinians without health insurance has now skyrocketed to nearly one in five.  Here’s the part of the story that really stands out, however: The state with the lowest uninsured rate (5.2%) is Massachusetts — the home to the program on which Obamacare is based in many respects — Romneycare. Meanwhile, the state with the highest rate is that market fundamentalist paradise, Texas at 26.3%.

It’s hard to see how there can be any doubt on the direction we need to head as a state and nation on this front.
