Many people can see how ridiculous Romney looks when he castigates a health care law that he virtually designed. He is making lots of hay with dyed in the wool conservatives, but to some of us his preposterous posturing just shows how difficult it is to pin down Mitts moral core. If he can disavow his own health care plan how can anyone believe in the sincerity of his views.

Romney's position should be quite simple... government healthcare, including individual mandate, is a state issue. It's not a federal issue. The US Constitution limits the federal government's individual mandate powers, as we can see by the US Supreme Court decision on the ACA.

This, of course, is too complex an issue for any but the most learned to understand. Hence, many, such as the first poster, will have trouble voting for Romney.

Some people believed Obama when he said:

* Ninety percent of working Americans will see a tax cut.
* no one earning less than $250,000 will see their taxes increase a single dime in any form.
* I will cut the deficit in half
* unemployment will go below seven percent.
* we will drill on sixty eight million acres, and ten million acres off-shore to become energy independent.
* I will negotiate with Canada for an oil pipeline.

Now some people believe him, when he says insurance will be affordable and for all Americans without increasing taxes. How some can be so foolish!
