March 6, 2011

Yesterday, Mitt Romney addressed the number one problem he has among 2012 GOP primary voters:  his implementation of universal health care in Massachusetts, aka “RomneyCare”.  Well, he kind of addressed it.  He pointed out that some of RomneyCare was good, some bad, but he’d never support an ObamaCare one-size-fits-all approach to all 50 states and [...]
