Area Republicans liked ObamaCare when it went by a different name
Mitt Romney, the presidential candidate who is trying to remake himself by refusing to be seen in a tie, is calling for a repeal of the health-care law that President Obama signed last year. As governor of Massachusetts, Romney signed into law a similar set of reforms.
Both pieces of legislation mandate that individuals buy health insurance. Romney is trying to differentiate the Massachusetts plan by calling it a “state solution.” Of course, back in 1994, Romney supported the idea of a federal individual mandate when it was the alternative to the overhaul of the health-care system that Bill and Hillary Clinton proposed.
