Obamacare Explained in 7 Easy Steps By Its Original Creator, Mitt Romney
As governor, Mitt Romney pioneered the main elements of the Obamacare in his state. The federal government funded the Romneycare experiment with the hopes of nationalizing the program if successful. Ninety-eight percent of the population in Massachusetts is now covered under Romneycare.
Most people like how the health care system works in his state. This is a huge success: Massachusetts achieves far more universal coverage than any other state, and people are now healthier. The Affordable Care Act builds on that success. Key elements of Romneycare were copied and perfected in the Affordable Care Act.
When Romney passed the law he faced all the same attacks the current law does: “Employers will drop coverage,” “Costs will skyrocket!”
“I think the reason is because President Obama can’t wait to get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care. Because, once they enroll millions of more individual Americans it will be virtually impossible for us to pull these benefits back from people.” -Michelle Bachmann, speaking to World Net Daily.
