Happy Birthday, Romneycare! XOXO, Obama campaign | - Yahoo! News
- Turn your head and cough: President Barack Obama's re-election campaign on Thursday marked the sixth anniversary of Mitt Romney's health care overhaul in Massachusetts with an online ad touting it as the inspiration for Obamacare. Never mind that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has vowed to kill Obamacare on "day one" if he wins the White House.The three-minute spot aims to blunt Romney's attacks on Obama's signature domestic policy achievement as well as paint him as a hypocrite or a flip-flopper. It could serve to remind conservatives who loathe Obamacare's requirement that Americans have insurance (or pay a penalty) that the so-called "individual mandate" is also at the heart of a Republican-authored health reform.
