The Health Care Amendment

Despite the highest health care spending in the nation, Massachusetts has over 700,000 residents without insurance who are often unable to get the care they need and suffer needlessly as a result. This proposed Constitutional Amendment would require the Legislature and Governor to enact laws that make sure every Massachusetts resident has access to affordable, comprehensive and equitably financed health insurance coverage.
