As for the claim that 10 million more have insurance, how would you know? The "Hussein" Obama administration still has not released the breakdowns as to how many of those who signed up for obamacare had previous insurance.
    I'm citing a known statistic, and you are are telling personal stories.

    Lastly, what you probably mean is "Healthcare ought to be a state issue, not a Federal one." Healthcare can be either, but you prefer it be closed to the purview of the state.
    Exactly, that is what Romney did, make it a state issue and I believe that is where it belongs as did our Founders

    Our Founders believed in having the govt. closer to the people and letting the people decide. they did in Mass. and chose Romneycare. Those that try to tie Romney to Obamacare don't seem to understand the difference.

    That's such a revisionist history. They tried to create a government with no strong federal presence, and it was a massive failure. True they wanted to give the states power, and provide checks and balances, but they clearly learned their lessons from the Articles of Confederation. A strong federal government was necessary to make us a country, and not a series of states.

    As it relates to national security, exactly correct but not social programs and you are the one revising history. Social programs are local or should be local, not federal one size fits all because it doesn't. States and local communities all have a different cost of living and that fact isn't recognized by big govt. liberals.

    An individual mandate, more coverage for the lower income people (obviously paid for by the hard working tax payers), more restrictions on small business, higher cost than projected, plans are more expensive for small business owners, almost half of physicians say there are longer wait times. If you like those type of socialist policies, then yes, you did good by voting for Romney. I believe in freedom, self reliance and fiscal responsibility, so Romney didn't get my vote.

    I don't live in Mass, and Romneycare has no affect on me at all. Obamacare does. Again you don't understand the difference between a state program and a federal one. Was Gruber talking about you?

    History suggests otherwise. The pendulum will swing back after the republicans **** everything up.

    But Romney ran for the federal position of president, and you voted for him. You voted for a progressive, I didn't. Who's the stupid voter then?
