RomneyCare -- manufacturing criminals

This is an old story, but one aspect of it was largely overlooked - Mitt Romney wants to make criminals out of people who don't buy this health insurance plan of his.

The "car analogy" is of course fatuous since people can opt to not drive a car and are not be punished as criminals should they choose to do that.

I'm going to say it right now. ROMNEY IS NOT FIT TO BE PRESIDENT. I will work actively against him in the most strident legal manner possible should he try to run in the primary. I will vote against him in the general election even if that means voting for the odious Hillary.

The Massachusetts legislature approved a bill Tuesday that would require all residents to purchase health insurance or face legal penalties, which would make this the first state to tackle the problem of incomplete medical coverage by treating patients the same way it does cars.[...]
