    ROMNEY DID NOT BUILD ROMNEYCARE HIMSELF.

    How Romney paid for Romneycare, with federal help

    We didn’t have to cut Medicare by $716 billion. We didn’t raise taxes on health companies by $500 billion, as the president did.

    Since the late 1990s, Massachusetts has also received additional Medicaid funds to enroll populations that other states traditionally do not cover.

    In 2005, when Romney was governor, the federal aid amounted to $550 million.

    That state ultimately secured three years of additional Medicaid funding, $1.05 billion, which largely financed the Massachusetts expansion

    Five years later, it’s largely federal funding that keeps Massachusetts’ universal coverage afloat. Since 2005, the state has twice renewed that federal waiver — the one Lizza and McDonough wrote about — to provide additional Medicaid dollars to the state.

    The most recent renewal was last December 2011, when the state secured $26.75 billion in federal funds over the course of three years:eusa_boohoo:

    Okay, so Romneycare is stupid and unsustainable for the state so they had to borrow from federal. So, who the hell will Obama borrow from to pay for Obamacare? What a freaking disaster.

    Stick your head back up your ass Ed, you sound smarter when you're muffled.

    The left has come unhinged and it's like watching monkeys in a net.

    There's s**t flying all over the place and they are only getting it on each other.

    Romney gave the state what the legislature wanted......

    Tenncare was and is a disaster too.

    And we want to repeat that on a national scale.

    The bastards on the left are in full retard mode.

    Of course not. Why do you think Ted Kennedy was standing behind him when he signed it?

    TennCare is a Medicaid privatization approach.

    And it was a disaster.

    It was an attempt to offer health care to all and it almost took the state under.

    Lessons to be learned and ignored.
