With coercion and oppression for all...
Make no mistake about it, Mitt Romney looks forward to the day when every American is forced by government to make health care decisions at the point of a gun:
MR. RUSSERT: So if a state chose a mandate, it wouldn’t bother you?MR. ROMNEY: I’d think it’s a terrific idea. I think you’re going to find when it’s all said and done, after all these states that are the laboratories of democracy, get their chance to try their own plans, but those who follow the path that we pursued will find it’s the best path, and we’ll end up with a nation that’s taken a mandate approach.
Think Mitt has changed his mind since making the statement above? Think again.
Mitt Romney is proud of the legacy of his health care mandate in Massachusetts, dire consequences notwithstanding.
UPDATE: Romney supported an individual health insurance mandate during the HillaryCare debate.
