Romney on health care

Faced with competing for a general election electorate, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has embraced most of the Democratic health care program, rejecting only the individual mandate and its accompanying enforcement mechanism—the latest permutation in his evolving position on health care.

Last month Kaiser Health News, to help voters navigate Romney’s twists and turns on the issue, posted a page that provides a lot of information on his record and public statements. It goes beyond the Democratic program and his corresponding Massachusetts program he pushed through the legislature as governor. It also has information on his stances on Medicare, Medicaid, health care as commerce, and his philosophy of health care—so far as it can be determined—as well as video clips on all these topics. In addition, there are a number of comments from people who have analyzed Romney’s health care positions.
