Boston Globe Likes Mass. Plan, but Reports Patients Waiting 100 Days to See Doctor

Tried reading the Boston Globe two days in a row?

One day its editorial page says Obama's health care plan is superior to McCain's; after all, it's sort of like the Massachusetts plan, and look at the state's high rate of insurance coverage now! Next day: Mass. residents waiting 100 days for primary care.

Unfortunately, coverage mandates don't solve the underlying problems in the health sector, whether we're talking about doctor shortages or costs.
