Today is the 6th anniversary of Romneycare: the Massachusetts Health insurance reform that was the basis for the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare).

Ezra Klein asks an important question: Why isn't Romney celebrating the anniversary of Romneycare?:

Here's something odd: There's nothing on Mitt Romney's Web site about the sixth anniversary of Romneycare. No news releases. No blog posts. Nothing.

And yet, Romneycare is doing pretty well. As you can see in Sarah's charts, it's covered about 95 percent of Massachusetts adults. Premiums are growing more slowly than the national average in both the employer and individual markets. And the law is, perhaps most importantly, very popular in Massachusetts.


Back in March, Ezra Klein interviewed "MIT economist Jon Gruber, who helped design the Massachusetts health reforms, on Romney's puzzling reticence to tout his signature accomplishment. It's relevant today, too."
