Here Romney seems to be taking a different approach, contending that the problem with HillaryCare is the “one size fits all” nature of the plan and that he never suggested Commonwealth Care as a model for the whole country. This seems to be a more intellectually defensible position than denying his plan had many of the same features as hers, but clearly this is different than what he was saying earlier in the week (“European-style socialized medicine plan”). The ordinary voter may not grasp the similarities between MittCare and HillaryCare but the press does here and here and here(subscription required — noting individual mandates are “the latest fad after Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts Miracle”).
