On a health care question, he argues that his opponents talk about what they want to do, but as governor, he got everybody insured. Tries to argue that there was no “government mandate,” then he had to correct himself to clarify that this meant no employer mandate, because obviously, there was an individual mandate requiring citizens to purchase health care. He said, repeatedly, our goal needs to be to get everybody insured. As far as I’m concerned, setting that as a proper function of government already cedes most of the argument to Democrats.
