Salem News: “Patrick needs to practice what he preaches”

In case you missed it, both the Salem News and the Lawrence Eagle Tribune ran editorials reinforcing our position that Governor Patrick should hand over any documents that were used in making the decision to cap insurance rates. In fact, the Eagle Tribune went as far as saying “If there are good reasons for a cap on rates, let everybody see them.”

Governor Patrick did respond to House Minority Leader Brad Jones letter requesting these documents, three weeks later. However, the Governor barely addressed the specific request and really said a whole lot of nothing.
