Mitt Romney has danced around the ObamaCare issue for most of the campaign. Understandably, he's tried to keep the spotlights shining on the lousy economy to keep too much scrutiny being spent on his own RomneyCare. OK, I get this.
But there's a stark difference between RomneyCare and ObamaCare: the Massachusetts plan didn't take half a trillion dollars from Medicare. There's simply no way to look at ObamaCare without seeing that Seniors are funding half of the whole thing. The only interpretation is that ObamaCare will take medical care away from them to give it to the uninsured.
Ohai. Waz dis ur health care?
That seems to me to be a stark difference between MittCare and ObamaCare, and a difference that will almost certainly galvanize the Senior voting bloc. After all, anyone on Medicare will have a vested interest in the immediate repeal of ObamaCare.
So what I don't understand is why Mitt isn't all over this like stink on a dog. I don't much care for the man, but it's undeniable that he has a finely tuned sense of what is politically advantageous for Mitt Romney.
