If you’re Mitt Romney, and you’re trying to put as much daylight as possible between Obamacare and the universal health plan you signed as Governor of Massachusetts, the last thing you want is for Barack Hussein Obama himself to approvingly point out the similarities between your plans.
But in an interview this morning on NBC, that’s exactly what Obama did. He said:
“When you actually look at the bill itself, it incorporates all sorts of Republican ideas. I mean a lot of commentators have said this is sort of similar to the bill that Mitt Romney, the Republican Governor and now presidential candidate, passed in Massachusetts.
A lot of the ideas in terms of the exchange, just being able to pool and improve the purchasing power of individuals in the insurance market, that originated from the Heritage Foundation…”
I suppose that one can espouse any position whatsoever and find a Romney action or quote that supports it.
