    yep.... Republicans are like Chameleons.... they were "for" a lot of things before they were against them.

    Nahhh... I don't believe that... they are just doing what they do to try to get elected...or in this case, win a nomination. Actually, on this one? I was probably a little harsh on the GOP... both sides do it to one extent or another.

    Watch it. You'll be amazed at how similar it is to Obamacare.

    And Newt and Mitt were for it before they were against it.

    The part that gets the right most upset now, the individual mandate, they used to call personal responsibility.
