Onion: Romney haunted by helping sick get health care

April 21, 2011 1 comment

My favorite part:

“The major strike against Mitt Romney is that he not only tried to help people get medical care, he actually did help people get medical care,” conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg said. “No other Republican in the field has that type of baggage. And in the end, in order to defeat President Obama, the GOP needs someone who has a track record of never wanting to help sick people.”

Like a lot of good Onion stories, it’s funny because it has a grain of truth to it.

Whether Romney suffers in the 2012 primaries because he worked some pragmatic utilitarianism into his policies as governor will be the big test for the GOP. Does the party truly care about governing? Or just putting down “liberals”?
