Mitt Romney is haunted by past for helping uninsured sick people

H/T to Martha
"Every day I am haunted by the fact that I gave impoverished Massachusetts citizens a chance to receive health care," Romney told reporters Wednesday, adding that he feels ashamed whenever he looks back at how he forged bipartisan support to help uninsured Americans afford medicine to cure their illnesses. "I'm only human, and I've made mistakes. None bigger, of course, than helping cancer patients receive chemotherapy treatments and making sure that those suffering from pediatric AIDS could obtain medications, but that's my cross to bear."
"My hope is that Republican voters will one day forgive me for making it easier for sick people—especially low-income sick people—to go to the hospital and see a doctor," Romney added. "It was wrong, and I'm sorry."

He might not want to do that. He will end up sounding like Obama.

Don't want that to happen.

BTW: Pawlenty makes distasteful joke http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fe573ZXTjT8

HaHaHaHa!

Now I'm getting into the story.

"Every time I think of that young exec having to order a Toyota rather than the BMW he wanted because he had to purchase health insurance instead, I cry in my coffee"

This shows how foolish it is for people to expect an apology from Romney for MA Care.

Don't hold your breath!

That sounds like something Anthony Weiner would say to demogogue the right...."Republicans just want to kill old people."

I love good satire, and that was well done.
