The Lowell Sun – Obamacare fan? Then Markey is your man

Four of the five candidates running for the U.S. Senate are opposed to Obamacare.

The fifth — Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey of Malden — not only voted for it but said it was the best vote he had ever taken.

What gives? What gives is that the issue is still a dominant campaign theme even though now — as thousands upon thousands of pages of new rules and regulations are being promulgated — it is the law of the land.

Despite the fact that Obamacare is being implemented, the issue is still a burning one that will be debated for the rest of this special election, and will be debated again in the congressional elections of 2014.
