    Mitt Romney brough my state's (MA) health plan into being right before he left office.

    This plan requires all MA citizens to have health insurance or pay a tax penalty, also known as a fine, every year for not having coverage.

    The plan also provides health care to low income people.

    His plan has also gotten my state over 2billion dollars in debt (you could argue that is devaul patrick's fault since he took over right after romney instituted the plan).


    Just curious as I know many conservatives like romney and are against universal health coverage.

    SO how do you reconcile these differences?

    Romney supporters you really need to nail this one down if you want him to run in 2012 without getting slammed by his opponents on the right.

    Can I use Ann Coulter-style hyperbole? Being governor of Massachusetts is like being governor of North Korea. You get the idea.

    Romney is the BEST chance we have.

    I did not know this, thanks for posting it.

    The more I learn the more I know that it's government that's the problem. How to fix that problem? I do not know.

    Let's hope he's the next one to drop like a fly (politically speaking, of course)...if the GOP wants their "1994 in the 21st century style" comeback so much...they need to get rid of these people.

    No, he isn't.

    Compared to McShame, he's meh, not as bad (in being effective). But...

    He's got that morph of career politician, used car salesman, and grubby televangelist all rolled into one kinda thing. It creeps you out and makes you skeptical of trusting him.

    STAY AWAY from Romney, people! DANGER WILL ROBINSON! STAY AWAY!

    We need a dark horse...

    The Dems found a dark horse (AKA Obama) after they got their clocks cleaned in '04.

    There's plenty of people that are BETTER.
