    The Romney camp in an attempt to defend ad where someone claimed Romney cancelled his healthcare and didn't care, said if he had healthcare in Massachusetts he would have been fine. Remember Romney said his Mass plan should be a model for the nation

    Before anyone accuses me of title malpractice I defer to the creator of healthcare reform in both Massaschusetts and at the federal level

    No fundamental difference? Really? Let's try a couple of couplets.

    You get a notice from the federal government that you've been drafted.
    You get a notice from your county government that you've been drafted.

    Your wife withdraws $1,000 from your checking account.
    Your councilman withdraws $1,000 from your checking account.

    The President of the United States declares war on Russia.
    The mayor of your city declares war on Russia.

    The level at which something is done IS a fundamental difference.

    Health insurance has long been regulated by the federal government and nobody batted an eye. They regulate a lot of industries.

    So it's more you get a notice from the county to move your car.

    The councilman votes to raise your taxes $200.

    The mayor of your city establishes a sister city relationship in Russia.

    You're absolutely right, degrees make all the difference.

    Frankly folks... People, more so republicans, just r not buying Mitt.
    Forget about polls. Romney is in a death spin.
    Romney really never got off the ground.
    Here are photos from 8/8/12 Romney event in Iowa.
    Surprisingly a swing state. Well, that's the illusion.
    Swing state? Yeah... Right Mitt.
    The local press built up this event for days.
    Results below...

    I'm shocked Romney spends money on this stuff.
    What a waste of resources i.e. his time.
    But hey... I never donated to this lost cause.
