Mitt Romney: It’s Conservative to Have Government Force You to Buy Insurance

Mitt Rommey says forcing Americans to buy a product in a conservative principle.

As Erick Erickson says:

This isn’t a flash back. This is today. Mitt Romney is again declaring the foundation of Obamacare, the individual mandate, “conservative.”

To be sure, it is conservative that one takes responsibility for their own healthcare. But the conservative solution is not to force Americans to buy a product.

Agreed.
