    What? Romneycare could have saved this man's wife? We can't say that. Romneycare? What's this Romneycare of which you speak? :eusa_whistle:

    :lol:

    Good stuff.

    Marsha Blackburn, GOP Congresswoman, Refuses To Acknowledge Romneycare (VIDEO)

    CNN host Brooke Baldwin played [GOP Rep] Blackburn a clip of Saul's gaffe on Thursday morning, in which the spokeswoman responded to a super PAC attack ad on Romney by pointing out that the steelworker in the ad, who lost his wife to cancer, would have had health insurance if he lived in Massachusetts under Romney's universal health care plan. Conservatives have since lambasted Saul for going off message in bringing up Romneycare, which Democrats often point out is remarkably similar to Obamacare. Conservative CNN contributor Erick Erickson tweeted, "OMG. This might just be the moment Mitt Romney lost the election."

    Blackburn continued to roll out anti-Obamacare talking points as Baldwin tried multiple times to interrupt her and steer the conversation back to Romneycare. "With all due respect, Congresswoman, we're talking about Mitt Romney," Baldwin said. "We're talking about a Mitt Romney spokesperson and specifically asking you to react to her comment. We played the sound bite where she is basically saying had this man gone to Massachusetts where he would have had health care, perhaps this would have prevented his wife's death. This has nothing to do with Obamacare."

    States should be free to institute their own programs if they wish.

    Although this woman did have insurance when she got sick so the whole thing was a lie from the beginning.

    States are free to implement their own plans. Obama has said repeatedly that under the law, if states can come up with a plan that would insure as many people and keep costs down as much as the ACA, then they are free to do so, and HHS will assist them in the implementation of those laws. Vermont is in the process of passing single-payer as we speak.

    State implementation of healthcare is distinct from a federal implementation. Either way, it's difficult to justify penalizing (or is it "taxing"? ;)) people for not buying a product.

    It should start in the states. There should be no "federal health program" at all. Leave it completely to the states. There are some reforms that can be done.. But forcing people in all 50 states to buy healthcare isn't one of them. What works for Mass., may not work in Va.

    That's true. I still have a hard time with the concept of anyone (state or federal level) requiring people to buy health insurance or any other product. I suppose individual states could implement certain changes to healthcare that would make coverage more accessible to people.

    I think reasonable people can disagree. I was just expressing my view, not looking for a debate. :)
