Barack Obama’s re-election campaign released a web video on Thursday commemorating the six-year anniversary of the healthcare law Mitt Romney signed in 2006, a law that bears a striking resemblance to the federal Affordable Care Act that the former Massachusetts governor has pledged to repeal.
Featuring testimonials from the experts who worked with both Romney and Obama on their respective laws and the first woman in Massachusetts to get covered under ‘Romneycare,’ the video makes a powerful point: Romney thought his health law would propel him onto the national stage; he even made sure it appeared in his official gubernatorial portrait.
Here’s the video, blasted out to reporters by the Obama campaign:
Whether Romney is able to make his opposition to ‘Obamacare’ appear in the least bit principled will be key to how voters evaluate him in the fall.
