Inside Politics: Dems mark anniversary of Romney health care law
Democrats mark anniversary of Romney health care law
Mitt Romney doesn’t like to be reminded of how his Massachusetts health care reform is similar to the Obama health care overhaul he continually denounces — so a leading Democratic super PAC did just that on Thursday, releasing a new video congratulating the likely Republican nominee on the law’s sixth anniversary.
Put together by American Bridge 21st Century, the video features Fox News clips from 2006 after the Massachusetts law was passed. In the video, Mr. Romney defends the law’s requirement for people to buy health coverage — even though he has spent the past year slamming the unpopular individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act.
“Everybody’s gonna have to buy their policy, no more free ride,” he says in one clip.
“We don’t let people drive a car around without insurance because we know that if they have an accident or cause a lot of damage, it could cost the rest of us a lot of money,” he said.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton made a wager with Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird ahead of Thursday night’s opening game in New York. If the Rangers win, Mr. Baird must wear New York blue. If the Senators prevail, Mrs. Clinton must don Ottawa red.
Obama won’t issue order sought by gay advocates
The White House said President Obama does not plan to issue a ban on discrimination against gay federal contractors sought by gay rights groups. The decision disappoints a constituency that has been an important source of support for him.
