Romney still standing by Romneycare

This is why Mitt Romney will not be the GOP presidential candidate in 2012. Anyone who thinks it is OK for the government, even on a state level, to force citizens to buy a private product because they are alive and live in that state has no understanding of the word "liberty."

Mitt Romney refused to criticize his Massachusetts health-care program tonight, saying he would prefer to lose the primary rather than renounce it.
“I’m standing by what I did in Massachusetts,” Romney said on Fox News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier. “I’m not trying to dust it aside. I’m absolutely firm that it was the right thing for our state. I’ll defend that and I understand it has political implications. And if it keeps me from winning a primary, so be it. But that happens to be the truth.”

So they’ve just brushed it aside.”
