In 2006 Video, Romney Calls Health Care Mandate 'Essential'

Full story: The New York Times

On the eve of the Supreme Court's health care ruling Thursday morning, a Democratic group has uncovered what it said was fresh evidence of Mitt Romney's one-time embrace of the individual insurance mandate that he now scorns.

Like Obama, Romney's opinion has obviously "evolved."

Anyone want to start the list of issues on which Obama has "evolved" since 2006?

Bishop Romputz is a lying scumbag. We all know that.

Lying is institutionalized in Bishop Romputz. Without his lies, Bishop Romputz would have no personality whatsoever.

Bishop Romputz didn't just approve of the individual mandate by way of the ultra right wing Heritage Foundation, he pushed it hard.

What a pathological liar this man is. How can anyone even consider supporting him for President of the BYU booster club much less for POTUS.

State and federal are two dif things just an FYI. ITs obvious none of it will work without a mandate but a fed one is unconstitutional. If the Healthy people donít sign up and pay into it itís impossible to fund.
Obama is a much bigger liar so I guess you will vote for no one.

From SCOTUSblog:

"The bottom line: the entire ACA is upheld, with the exception that the federal government's power to terminate states' Medicaid funds is narrowly read."

Upheld, thanks to Justice Roberts' swing vote. Wow.

The pundits were wrong, this is seriously energizing the left.

Bishop Romputz will now have to campaign against seriously conservative Roberts AND RomneyCare AND rational thought AND the truth.

That, Mutt, is a very big hill to climb.

As President Romney will start off on day 1 by issuing waivers on unaffordable obamanationcare to all 50 states, much like the obamanation has already issued waivers to the unions and other obamanation supporters. Then the repeal and replacement of the unaffordable obamanationcare with affordable commonsense solutions will proceed.

Gov Romney's message that if you want to get rid of the extremely unpopular unaffordable obamanation care you will have to first get rid of the obamanation himself is pretty powerful. It's certainy rallying the conservative base behind Romney. In the meantime the obamanation was out unlawfully kissing more illegal mexihole azz for votes.

Most of the country is FOR most of what's in the 'Obamacare' bill. The ONLY part that's even debatable is the mandate, and it's now Constitutional, if just barely.

Your 'predictions' are rubbish. Americans are seeing how badly reTHUGlicans are doing in Congress and in their choice for President, and Flip Flopney's about to go down in flames.

Stick that hypo in your fat ass, loser.:)

Wonder if holder will lose his job before Obama... He should of been fired a Long time ago.

President Romney issuing waivers in obamanation fashion to all 50 states on day 1 to the unaffordable obamanationcare act along with the obamanation's waivers to the unions will effectively NEUTER the unaffordable omananationcare act. Then with 4 additional Republican seats in the Senate after Nov the unaffordable obamanationcare act can be repealed in Congress and of course signed by President Romney. Is that magic enough?

Um, it's a "fact" that the USSC just declared it Constitutional, douchebag. Are you really this dumb? If you have any refutations to offer, then offer them.

You're just blathering nonsense and hot gas, as usual. Oh, and lifting glasses of beer isn't "working out," in case you thought differently...LOL
