VIDEO: IS THE GOP REALLY DUMB ENOUGH TO NOMINATE THIS MAN FOR PRESIDENT?

Mitt Romney is, for all intents and purposes, the father of ObamaCare—a government boondoggle that busts the budget, raises health care costs and reduces access.  Even worse, it is apparently the first entitlement in history to grow less popular over time.

That ad was put together by Massachusetts Dems highlighting Romney’s role in building the ObamaCare prototype. How the Hell is is this knucklehead going to stand on a debate stage and exploit Obama’s most glaring liability? How is he going to talk about repeal?

    Absolutely right. Exchanges and the individual mandate are the centerpieces of the Obama health reform law. And they come straight from Mitt Romneys’ innovations in Massachusetts. To be fair, they did represent Republican orthodoxy at the time. Here, for example, is how the Heritage Foundation used to defend the idea of mandating health insurance purchases against the charge that it was no different from forcing someone to buy a GM car: ““If a young man wrecks his Porsche and has not had the foresight to obtain insurance, we may commiserate but society feels no obligation to repair his car. But health care is different. If a man
    is struck down by a heart attack in the street, Americans will care for himwhether or
    not he has insurance. If we find that he has spent money on other things rather than
    insurance, we may be angry but we will not deny him services— even if that means
    more prudent citizens end up paying the tab.?

    Without the intellectual support of institutions like Heritage and the policy support of politicians such as Mitt Romney and Oren Hatch, health reform would never have gotten off the ground.
