Massachusetts legislature is set to enact the strict cost controls that GOP Tea-Baggers described as 'death panels' during the Obamacare debate. Gov. Deval Patrick has promised to sign the bill.

The provision is expected to save the state $200 billion over 15 years. (or almost $10 trillion if applied nationwide -- even in the Tea-Bagger states.)

Massachusetts lawmakers are expected to vote Tuesday on long-awaited legislation to rein in health-care costs. The effort, which would put the state again at the forefront of health policy, will be watched by other states looking to control spiraling costs.

After months of debate, House and Senate leaders filed a bipartisan compromise bill of more than 350 pages Monday night that would seek to contain health-care costs by setting a target at which overall state health spending should rise.
