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.
