  • Romney book distributed at GOP convention contains pro-healthcare reform content

    Copies of Mitt Romney’s book, distributed at the GOP convention, retain a sentiment anathema to the GOP base — that the Massachusetts healthcare reform law could be a model for the nation.

    The sentence that makes this case was changed for No Apology‘s paperback version, but reporters in Tampa received copies with the original wording along with other swag.

    On page 177 of those copies, Romney writes that “portable, affordable health insurance” can be achieved “for everyone in the country, and it can be done without letting government take over healthcare.”
