Isn't it conveneient for the right wing propaganda machine that so many Americans have short memories?
Well, allow me to refresh...let's revisit Romneycare...

Romneycare meets Obamacare

Here in Massachusetts, we’ve watched the nation’s health care debate – four years long and counting – from a singular perch: We’ve been living with a version of the Affordable Care Act since 2006.

We’ve had strong opinions about Obamacare, pro and con, but the wild fears and exaggerations we hear from other parts of the country don’t ring true. Politicians and pundits in other states wring their hands about the destruction of the American health care system, but here it’s not all that big a deal. Most of us - those who get their insurance through their employer or a government program - are still dealing with the same insurance companies and the same doctors as before the adoption of what our former governor’s GOP primary opponents dubbed “Romneycare.”

So here comes Obamacare, to Massachusetts as well as 49 other states. Will the big bad federal program mess up the successful state one?

Not according to top state health officials. They say Obamacare will make Romneycare better.

Romney's talking point was: what's good for Massachusetts might not work in other states. He never explained why. Do people in other states have three arms? Five legs? Actually, he never even attempted to explain, and the media had the courtesy to not ask him.

You goofballs who keep repeating this need to get a little more education. There is a HUGE difference in doing something in a state as opposed to the ENTIRE country! You can move out of that state if you don't like it. You Left nuts are nothing but propaganda artists.

Romneycare is between the people of Massachussetts and their state. It does not apply anywhere else in the country.

I choose NOT to live in Massachussetts and "Romneycare" cannot touch me.

Speaking of Romneycare, how's it doing over there?

Hmm...looks like 62% supported it in Feb 2012:
