    Will Romneycare destroy Romney's electability?

    Will Romneycare destroy Mitt Romney's electability in the Republican primary?

    As far as I'm concerned, he could be Obama lite, or perhaps worse--a Democrat in Republican clothing.

    His economic record in "Taxachucetts" is deplorable.

    Since repeal of Obamacare would be a top priority for our next president, I could never vote for anyone who created the same kind of monster he needs to slay.

    Do you agree?

    Romney can either hypocritically attack Obama care with crackpot reasons why his health care was supposedly significalntly different or he can endorse Obamacare. With the first option, people will be disgusted by his intellectual dishonesty. The second option is intellectually honest, but turns off his base.

    Given that this issue for conservatives has been brought up constantly for well over a year and a half now. I doubt there are many left who don't know about it already. Despite this, he is still the front runner. So I am guessing not.

    I choose no because I believe Romney is electable because his more moderate stances appeals to GOPs for whom the healthcare bill isn't the big issue(jobs are), independents and Democrats disgusted with Obama

    It has already been established that a state can mandate auto insurance and the specific requirements of coverage. Applying that to medical insurance (without the mandate) has also been allowed. Creating a mandate for health insurance, then, would be perfectly within the parameter's of a state's powers. Mandating the purchase of a specific product, regardless of the value/need for that product, is not something the federal government has the consitutional authority to do. In that sense, the mandate in Obamacare is hugely different than the mandate in Romneycare.

    I think both programs suck, but there is a huge difference in the validity of O-care v. R-care.

    I don't know. I'm very reluctant to vote for him because of this reason, and because I don't like his hair. I reserve a judgement today because it may come down to anyone but Obama.

    Not true. There are many people who do not have auto insurance. I'm going to guess that the vast majority of the people who live in NYC have no auto insurance.

    I saw Mitch Daniels on the Daily Show the other day and couldn't help but think, "He'd never get elected with that hairline". Your dig on Romney's hair reminded me.

    I guess I have to go into intricate detail with everything I post, eh? I would think I didn't have to clarify that the mandate involves those who own and drive cars.

    You can't say there are people who don't own and operate their bodies.

    Romney's liberalism and flip flopping in general will destroy his electability.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
