The Boston Globe has an update on how that universal health care coverage in Massachusetts is working out:
Governor Deval Patrick is not embracing the popular outrage over the $8.6 million in compensation given to Cleve L. Killingsworth, the former chief executive of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, who resigned abruptly last year....
Asked again about the appropriateness of Killingsworth's severance package in light of Blue Cross Blue Shield's status as a nonprofit heath insurer, Patrick shot back: "I got your question. That was my answer."
Killingsworth, a major Democratic donor, has given $5,000 to the Massachusetts Democratic Party and $1,500 to the governor's campaign fund.
