Gabriel Gomez on Health Care
Gomez said one way to protect local jobs is to repeal the medical device tax included in President Barack Obama's 2010 federal health care law.
Markey said he supported job-creating projects in western Massachusetts including the Union Station regional transportation project in Springfield.
Gomez said he believes there should be universal, affordable health care coverage, but reform should be done at a state level, as in Massachusetts.
Winslow said he believes "Obamacare is bad for Massachusetts" because there is already a state-based plan, and the national reform adds taxes and bureaucracy. But rather than repeal it, he would exempt any states that already meet federal standards from the Affordable Care Act.
