Romney’s preexisting condition

I titled this video “Lack of detail: the Romney health plan’s preexisting condition.” This ponderous video is mainly posted to torture commenters Don A in Pennsyltucky and Warren Terra.

The written version, with weblinks, etc., can be found here.

  1. Thank you for the text. It’s a good and an effective statement – and I could read it to myself faster than I could watch the video.

  2. Thanks for the text! I skipped the video too. “Based on what’s been revealed so far, [Romney’s health plan] won’t do the job for people with preexisting conditions.”

    So in other words, it’s a great health plan for people who aren’t sick.
