There are four reasons why Gov. Romney’s opposition to the health care act is so outrageous.
First, while governor of Massachusetts, Romney said he was pleased that the Legislature included the individual mandate in the state health care legislation that he then eagerly signed into law.
Second, the individual mandate was conceived by the Heritage Foundation in 1989. This extremely conservative group, created largely by the Coors Beer Co., is three clicks to the right of any other think tank in Washington, D.C.
Third, the Harvard University School of Public Health found that the health care law would save 25,000 lives each year (children being one third of the total).
Fourth, the Congressional Budget Office estimates the law will save American taxpayers $250 billion in the next few years.
Michael S. Dana,
Mitt Romney thought that if he made a little jaunt to Europe, “poof,” it would make him a foreign-policy expert.
Well, “poof” happened, all right.
On Mitt’s very first stop, in London, he opened his mouth and offended the whole country of England with his gaffe on the Olympics.
And their whole country responded.
In Israel, Mitt made another blunder.
Mitt, maybe you ought to stick to your strong suit, singing.
Your other suits are worse than your singing: like hiding your tax returns, and worse hiding your money in Swiss, Cayman and Bahama bank accounts so you won’t have to pay your fair share of taxes as we do; like conning us about jobs when what you did was outsource jobs to India, Mexico and China; like your entire congressional party conning us about jobs when all they did is say no to our president’s jobs proposals for needed infrastructure.
On second thought, I don’t think I want to hear you sing either.
