    Will Romneycare, although a success in Massachusettes, sink Romney as a GOP presidential candidate?

    "The general assumption in the pundit class is that Romney’s great political vulnerability is the provision in his 2006 law that, like Obama’s law, requires individuals buy private health insurance or be enrolled in a government program."

    The Repubs vehemently ranted and raved and foamed at the mouth in their opposition to the Democrat's "Obamacare" health care bill - and voted unanimously against it.
    They predicted that "Obamacare" would destroy America.

    If the Repubs nominate Romney to be their 2012 nominee, when Romney supported and signed into law the nearly identical "Romneycare" health care bill when he was the MA Governor - it will make the Repubs the biggest fucking hypocrites in modern day political history.

    I knew that Romneycare would be Mitt Romney’s Achilles Heel in the race for GOP presidential nomination. In spite of all his efforts to spin it as being good for Massachusetts but not the whole country, I seriously doubt that he will ever live down what is his most enduring legacy.
