Today, Romney tries to explain his chicken-in-every-pot pipedream in a letter to the Wall Street Journal:
Health Care for Everyone? We Found a Way.That may be the most preposterous paragraph I've ever read. And it came from a Republican, for God's sake.
By Mitt Romney
Every uninsured citizen in Massachusetts will soon have affordable health insurance and the costs of health care will be reduced. And we will need no new taxes, no employer mandate and no government takeover to make this happen. (link)
I can only surmise that Romney has had actuaries run the numbers and they determined that the state of Massachusetts can't go bankrupt because of his "free healthcare for all" scheme until after he gains the White House. Either that or he's gone stark raving mad.
Sorry, Mitt, if I want insanity, I'll vote for a Democrat ...
