132. Meh. That's okay among us chickens. However, in reality,
Romneycare was modeled on Hillarycare. Romney ain't smart enough or creative enough to have come up with anything on his own. About all he did was provide bad figures to the legislature.

Truth is, the Legislature and Romney could not agree. Massachusetts was about to lose a boatload of federal money unless it adopted a plan. Ted Kennedy, rest his soul, banged Romney's head togther with the heads of our Democratic legislative leacers and eh, voila, so called Romneycare.

Romney can't backpedal now because, to show what a "get stuff done" guy he was, he such made a big deal of how he got the liberal Massachusetts legislature to adopt a health care plan.
