Indeed, Governor Patrick isn’t sounding too confident about the Romney Plan:
“We aren’t far enough along yet to know whether to try a totally different course than the one we’re on,” he said this week. “There are going to be bumps, there are going to be disappointments as we go along … but we’ve got to stick with this.”
