Makes sense especially since RomneyCare is the parent of that commie "Obamacare".

Some GOPers also fancy the idea of government run banks.

They claim to. Kind of an ironic claim considering they cuy approriations for troops and VA benefits.

Let's see...Massachusetts, one of the most liberal states in the union, implemented universal HC...which is deep in cost overruns.

What is the surprise about that?

This is what we would like to avoid on a national level;

Three years ago, Massachusetts adopted a plan requiring all residents to purchase health insurance, with state subsidies for lower-income residents. But rather than creating a utopia of high-quality affordable healthcare, the result has been the exact opposite – skyrocketing costs, worsened access, and lower quality care.
The intended consequences of liberal ideas.

The bad news is that universal coverage costs more money. Three years after enactment, the commonwealth of Massachusetts is unable to afford its dream of universal coverage. Last week, as part of a short-term fix, Gov. Deval Patrick ordered officials to stop automatic enrollment of low-income people in the state's Commonwealth Care public insurance plan.

When it comes to the military, they're fine with socialism.
I doubt a lot of them will give up Medicare and Social Security if they had the choice. It's just words.

Under the rule of one of the top GOP Presidential candidates in 2008 and at the recent CPAC, RomneyCare.

If the residents are so unhappy with it, 4 years after the fact, why hasn't RomneyCare been repealed?

Why don't they just come out of the closet and hold hands with the rest of their brethen?
