ObamaCare is RomneyCare

So says University of California, Berkeley economist Brad DeLong and he is correct:
ObamaCare is RomneyCare.
The health-care reform plan that Mitt Romney proposed when he was Governor of Massachusetts, and shepherded through the Massachusetts legislature is the health-care reform plan that Barack Obama proposed and shepherded through the U.S. Congress.


  1. I hate the idea of either, but there is a difference between state and federal law

  2. Einhorn is Finkle. Finkle is Einhorn.

  3. (She's Ray Finkle. She's a man!) Rather than the state being a check on the general government, states are often used for "pilot programs" that are tested; then they're launched nationally. Just ask Charlotte Iserbyt about Maine and our federal education programs.

  4. In fairness, I think Romney would respond that his plan was different and better because he loves America more.
