We couldn’t be happier with the response to our post demonstrating that, as a US Senate candidate in 1994, Mitt Romney favored a federal mandate requiring individuals to purchase health insurance. The post has been widely picked up across the media and bandied about the Twitterverse. We even made it to TownHall.com – yay?
Governor Romney has made it very clear over the last many years, including during the 2008 presidential cycle, that he opposes a federally imposed individual mandate.
Huh, interesting. ‘Cause as we believe we’ve irrefutably demonstrated, he made it clear in 1994 that he supported a federally imposed individual mandate. He may not have loved it, but he said he’d vote for it. Sounds like support to me.
We can only conclude that Team Romney has done the English-speaking world a tremendous service. How often have you wondered how big a number “many” actually is? It’s so vague, so tough to pin down. But today, we know one thing for certain: “many” is less than 17.
