David - I agree retirees should be required to enroll in Medicare - but only if GIC makes available supplement plans for all retirees; currently, Barnstable county is red-lined. Having Medicare only is a reduction in coverage.

I agree that the article overstates the current situation. Fiscal crisis is not endemic in Massachusetts! Overrides continue to pass at just slightly lower rates than in past years. Our combined state and local tax/fee burden places Massachusetts in the lower tier among the 50 states. Some towns just bring it upon themselves with bad decisions, some fall prey to circumstances, and some just have a culture that does not support local government services.
