Today, Obama for America released a new video highlighting the sixth anniversary of the Massachusetts health care law, or Romneycare, which Governor Romney said he wanted to serve as a national model for health care reform.  And it did: Massachusetts health care reform served as the model for the Affordable Care Act. Mitt Romney even included an individual mandate in his health care reform plan.

Now that Romney is running for president, apparently he doesn’t believe in taking on rising health care costs or providing affordable accessible health care to all Americans. He advocates letting insurance companies go back to dropping Americans’ coverage when they get sick, discriminating against those with preexisting conditions, and making women pay more for their health care. The video features John McDonough, an architect of Massachusetts health care reform and the Affordable Care Act; Jonathan Gruber, consultant to both the Romney and Obama administrations; and Madelyn Rhenisch, the first Massachusetts resident to enroll in Romneycare.
