Read about it in a Teagan Goddard Political Wire post aptly titled Romney Bungles Response to Clinton.

In other healthcare related debate, DaveG of argues that the Clinton Health Plan Requires [a] Real Republican Response, and further argues that Romney’s plan as it stands is not an adequate rejoinder. We concur.

There is also this issue: RomneyCare and HillaryCare are both based on individual mandates. So: Romney’s plan concedes in advance the core issue of whether we will be free to choose to buy in or not to the Democrats, whether Hillary or Edwards, who also favours mandates—the only operational difference between the plans is size, scope, and, hence, price, as argued by eye of in a post titled Romney’s Clinton Problem, a post that we would re-title The GOP’s Romney Problem.
