    I read your little link there. The so-called "differences" are bullcrap. They're still basically the same thing.

    But hey, let the Mittster try and spin it if he wants.

    Indeed, that's true. And thanks to President Obama, that opportunity is no longer reserved just for Bay Staters, it's been expanded to every American citizen.

    Romney can take credit for implementing the original model if he likes. The primaries are over, he should be able to take the occasional victory lap and revel in that success (for which Obama does indeed owe him).

    You must've noticed that your link doesn't actually list any substantive differences between the approaches of the two pieces of legislation. Other than the point that Obamacare contained significant Medicare reforms, which obviously Romneycare didn't have the authority to pursue.
