Since Mitt Romeny now finds himself in the difficult position of campaigning against his own health care plan it is doubfult you will hear him speak on the subject again. Here is Mitt in his own words on majors points of his Massachusetts plan which the ACA is the direct descendant to provide some much needed perspective.
"Some of my libertarian friends balk at an individual mandate. But is it libertarian to insist that government pick up the tab for those without insurance or means to pay?"
“Governor … you imposed tax penalties in Massachusetts?”
“Yes, we said, look, if people can afford to buy it, either buy the insurance or pay your own way. Don’t be free-riders.””
“when the uninsured show up in emergency rooms and get free health care, that’s a “form of socialism”
“I think it’s the ultimate conservative plan.”
“I think there are a number of features in the Massachusetts plan that could inform Washington on ways to improve health care for all Americans. The fact that we were able to get people insured without a government option is a model I think they can learn from.”
There you have it, following Mitt's suggestion Washington did improve health care with the Massachusetts plan, the ultimate conservative plan. With people so upset over the penalty or tax perhaps next time we should try some liberal solutions.
