Today, I read an article in the Boston Herald where Giuliani was critical Of Romney's plan in Massachusetts. Now everyone has a right to an opinion, but Rudy seems to be suffering from the same demented view of Romney as the WSJ. Here he is the Boston Herald:
“There’s no question that Romneycare is a big mistake. And there’s no question that it’s the same as Obamacare,” Giuliani said in an exclusive video interview with the Herald yesterday after a keynote speech in the Dion Center at Rivier College.....
.....“I’m known for my candor. I find it impossible to skirt around the truth. I don’t like it, and I don’t think it’s helpful to voters,” Giuliani told the Herald. “(Both) have crushing mandates that impose taxes or fines on people if they don’t have health care.”Unfortunately, Rudy took the LOW ROAD on this. Rather than comment on the Proposal that Romney put forth about repealing Obamacare, he decided to dwell on a state plan that has no affect on him or any other non-Massachusetts resident. Instead of taking the high road, he decided to help Obama by justify Obama's use of Romney's MADE FOR MASSACHUSETTS ONLY plan.
BTW, What was your plan in NY. And while you're at it, Do you have a plan to repeal Obamacare? ....chirp.....chirp!
It's to bad he hadn't followed the lead of these other well known Republicans:
Tim Pawlenty: I don't think I've taken a jab at them in the sense of criticizing them. I'm just saying the Massachusetts plan has succeeded in expanding access to people who are uninsured, but it has not succeeded in controlling costs. There's another, new story out there yesterday in the Boston Globe that Massachusetts has the most expensive and one of the most rapidly rising health care cost systems in the country.
I believe Governor Romney -- had he been Governor these last four years -- would have done something to address that or fix that.
He hasn't been there for 4 years, so I don't criticize him. I think it's a situation where I'm sure he would have done something differently had he been there. He hasn't been there for four years.Here is Pawlenty again. Fast forward to the 1:40 minute mark:
Want some advise Mr. Mayor, next time you dress up, never where heels if you plan on joining the chorus line, It could prove to be hazardous to your health. But then again, you probably don't have to worry about paying your medical bills.
