Ed board drops jaws with seminal, tough health care editorial on day of Romney speech.

“Mr. Romney now claims ObamaCare should be repealed, but his failure to explain his own role or admit any errors suggests serious flaws both in his candidacy and as a potential President.”

“Mr. Romney is compromised and not credible.”
“As everyone knows, the health reform Mr. Romney passed in 2006 as Massachusetts Governor was the prototype for President Obama’s version and gave national health care a huge political boost.”

“Mr. Romney now claims ObamaCare should be repealed, but his failure to explain his own role or admit any errors suggests serious flaws both in his candidacy and as a potential President.”

“In the name of personal responsibility, Mr. Romney also introduced the individual mandate, first in the nation, requiring everyone to buy coverage or else pay a penalty. Free riders, he said, transferred their own costs to others, either through higher premiums or taxes. This is the same argument the Obama Administration is now using.”

“Mr. Romney’s refusal to appreciate this, then and now, reveals a troubling failure of political understanding and principle.”

“[I]n Mr. Romney they took advantage of a politician who still doesn’t seem to understand how government works.”
