Arizona’s Proposition 101 appears to be defeated

From The Arizona Republic:

Vote counts suggest that Proposition 101, dubbed the health-care choice initiative, will be defeated.

The most recent count shows that 50.3 percent voted against the measure that backers said would prevent a government-run universal health plan in Arizona.

The Arizona Academy of Family Physicians opposed Proposition 101 as well.  I guess the majority of Arizonans are opposed to having the right to independently contract with providers or insurance companies for their health care.  Or perhaps they think the government health care gravy train is about to arrive and they don’t want to be left behind at the depot.

Arizonans might want to look at Hawaii and Massachusetts‘ experiments along the same lines before they purchase their train tickets.
