Romney Knows How to Control Health Care Costs; Didn’t Want to in Massachusetts

During the CNN Western Republican Presidential Debate, Mitt Romney said: 

And when it comes to knowledge about health care and how to get our health care system working, I may not be a doctor like this one right over here, but I sure understand how to bring the cost of health care down and how to also make sure that we have a system that works for the American people.  

And here’s Jennifer Haberkorn reporting for Politico: 

Timothy Murphy, who was Massachusetts Health and Human Services secretary while Romney was governor, said he doubted the governor would have supported any cost regulations for philosophical reasons.

“People say we didn’t do cost controls,” said Murphy, who is now president and CEO of Beacon Health Strategies, a managed behavioral health care company. “I would never do that in a million years. … We didn’t think it was the proper role of government.”
