I wonder when Mitt will have an epiphany and realize he can’t outrun RomneyCare?
(NY Daily News) – Rudy Giuliani demanded that Mitt Romney apologize for his Massachusetts health care plan during a visit to New Hampshire on Friday.
The former mayor of New York said that Romney made a “terrible mistake” in requiring residents to purchase health care when he signed the plan into law five years ago, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.
“[Romney] can’t talk his way out of this,” Giuliani said. “If you create a state or a federal government that can give orders like that, you’re taking away people’s freedom, and I think Gov. Romney should be more sensitive to that.”
Giuliani also blamed the former Massachusetts governor for providing the model for President Barack Obama’s national health care plan. He said that Romney must admit the plan’s failures in order to avoid hurting the Republican Party.
“[It] hurts us in being able to overthrow Obamacare,” he said.
