Mitt Romney On Health Care — Comments Welcome!

New England Cable News just aired Mitt Romney's speech on health care live, and we live-streamed the NECN feed. If you watched, what did you think? Please share the inimitably intelligent comments characteristic of CommonHealth readers below. Here's my pick for strongest quote:

"I’m proud of the fact that in our state, when we faced real challenges, we didn’t just say, 'Well, it’s a problem that no one can solve.' We said, 'We’ve got a job to do. We need to help people, we need to do our best.' By the way, what we did wasn’t perfect... but overall, am I proud of the fact that we did our best for our people and we got people insured? Absolutely!"

Here's the Washington Post's Ezra Klein on Romney's plan. And here's The Wall Street Journal from this morning, writing about "the failure of the ObamaCare model that began in Massachusetts."

This program aired on May 12, 2011. The audio for this program is not available.
