Romney Health Care Plan Nearly Doubles Family Insurance Costs: Study

Mitt Romney

Under Romney’s proposed health care plan, American families buying non-group health insurance would pay nearly double what they pay under Obamacare, according to a new study by Families USA entitled "ObamaCare versus RomneyCare versus RomneyCandidateCare." That includes both comparative insurance premium payments as well as out-of-pocket expenses.


How Romney paid for Romneycare, with federal help

...So Massachusetts used not just federal Medicaid money but federal dollars above and beyond that Medicaid money to finance their health reforms. It is difficult to see how Romney’s proposal to cut Medicaid spending and hand that reduced share over to the states would allow other states to follow Massachusetts’ example. It might not even permit Massachusetts to continue following Massachusetts’ example.

Senh: So now he's no longer repealing Obamacare, he's just gonna tweak it slightly so he can bitch about it.


Obama team celebrates anniversary of Romney's health care law


Six years after Mitt Romney signed into law a signature health care reform package in Massachusetts, it's his chief political rival, Barack Obama, who's celebrating. President Obama's re-election team on Thursday released a three-minute web video marking the sixth anniversary of the law that's now known as "Romneycare," reminding voters that the signature effort in Massachusetts helped inspire Mr. Obama's landmark legislation.

Senh: Wow. Talk about lip service. Talk about jumping bandwagons. Romney wants to tear down health care reform that he favored and made work in Massachusetts when he was governor.
