Mitt Romney's Health Care Woes


All of the hub-bub surrounding Judge Henry Hudson’s ruling regarding President Obama’s health-care overhaul does not bode well for the former Governor of Massachusetts:
A likely U.S. Supreme Court battle over a key component of Obamacare — which was modeled on a Bay State law championed by former Gov. Mitt Romney — could plague the GOP presidential wannabe just as the 2012 White House race heats up, experts said yesterday.

“The longer this goes on and the more it’s in the headlines, the worse for Romney,” said Larry Sabato, who heads the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. “When will it get to the Supreme Court? At least a year. That puts it right in the middle of the presidential political season — which would be a nightmare for Romney.”

“Obviously he’s got a problem regardless of how the courts rule,’’ Sabato said. “He’s got a political problem here, not a legal problem.
Sabato is right on here. It will be interesting to see how Romney -- if he runs -- reacts to his own party's criticism of so-called "Romneycare" (since it was so similar to "Obamacare").
