I am not surprised that Romney couldn't back away from his signature health care bill in Massachusetts, that is even though it was largely designed by the same economist who designed ObamaCare. Romney's response that "he feels it was a net positive for his state, but that works at the state level doesn't work nationally"
doesn't make a lot of sense. The economic problems with ObamaCare are the same as those in Romney care.
Mitt Romney rejected Mike Huckabee's call for him to admit that the "RomneyCare" health care program failed, instead saying he's "proud" of "getting everyone covered" when he was governor of Massachusetts.
"Mitt Romney is proud of what he accomplished for Massachusetts in getting everyone covered,” Romney’s spokesman, Eric Fehrnstrom, told the Boston Globe, in the first direct response Team Mitt made to Huckabee's criticism of the health plan in his new book.
Fehrnstrom also put daylight between the Romney health care bill and President Obama's reform package, which is unpopular among voters and is the subject of several lawsuits by different states.
“What's important now is to return to the states the power to determine their own healthcare solutions by repealing Obamacare," Fehrnstrom added. "A one-size-fits-all plan for the entire nation just doesn't work.” . . .
