Mitt Pushed for National Mandate

Mitt's claim that there's no connection between RomneyCare and ObamaCare are evaporating.

Andrew Kaczynski, a journalist from Buzzfeed, has unearthed three television news clips from the summer of 2009 in which Romney bragged about taking on health care reform in Massachusetts and said the federal government could learn from the Bay State and use it as a model to get everyone insured. Kaczynski also dug up a USA Today op-ed penned by Romney in July 2009 that urged President Obama to adopt an individual mandate to purchasing health insurance as part of national reform.
