House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) issued the following statement today in response to Governor Patrick’s celebration of the six year anniversary of the Bay State’s 2006 health care reform law:
Governor Patrick’s blatant game of campaign politics on behalf of President Obama is alarming.
I can only assume that my invitation to these recent celebrations, and those of so many others involved in the Massachusetts health care reform law of 2006, was lost in the mail.
It is impossible that so many people simply were not invited to such an auspicious event. The only plausible reason is that the Governor didn’t want too many witnesses to his grand political theatrics at the behest of his friend, the President.
But I’m sure we can all feel confident that, in these extraordinarily difficult fiscal times, the Governor wouldn’t even consider using a dime of taxpayer dollars to fund such a blatantly political undertaking.
