Hey, No Joke: Romney Now Touting Romneycare

http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/09/romney-touts-romneycare.php?ref=fpnewsfeed



Mitt Romney pointed to the health care law he signed as governor of Massachusetts one of his signature achievements Wednesday, a move that has drawn swift and strong rebuke from conservatives in the past.

Romney pointed to the Massachusetts health care law — the foundation for the national healthcare reform law Romney promises to dismantle if elected — as a key highlight of his record in an interview with NBC News.

“Don’t forget — I got everybody in my state insured,” Romney told NBC. “One hundred percent of the kids in our state had health insurance. I don’t think there’s anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record.”

Romney has attacked President Obama’s similar law, which extends insurance coverage to millions of uninsured people across the country. Romney has pledged to repeal Obama’s law lock, stock and barrel, replacing it with vaguer reforms that would potentially leave more people uninsured by removing the ban on preexisting condition discrimination.

1. O.M.G. does he see how foolish he is? People can't trust him. He never says the same things!

3. In a word, no, he can't see (or hear). Anyone who has been around a pathological liar knows ...

that their intensity and ability to convince comes from the actual belief at that moment, that their words are true...regardless of anything uttered before. It truly boggles the mind. They will often pass a polygraph...because they truly believe what they are saying is true. And the person in my experience is now a head county party politician.
