Among the reasons not to vote for Romney: he still claims

this mess was a good idea.
When the Bay State passed its health-reform law in 2006, 9 percent of non-elderly adults lacked insurance; that’s now down to 5 percent. The law didn’t reduce expensive emergency-room use as predicted. Instead, emergency-room visits have climbed by 9 percent, or about 3 million visits, from 2004 to 2008.
Health care now consumes 35 percent of the state budget, up from 22 percent in 2000. Patrick recently asked Washington for $473 million to help make the Massachusetts reform work — on top of the $1.2 billion in support the feds have already kicked in over three years, more than $3,000 per person in the state.
Yet small businesses are clearly finding it necessary to dump their employees on the public health plans. The Boston Globe recently reported on a broker who helps firms do just that; his practice is booming. He’s seen about 90 business owners terminate their plans since April

Yeah, I'm just effing dying to vote for Romney; anti-gun AND pro-socialized medicine, yeah, just what we need more of...

His supporters keep touting his awesome business acumen and what a great leader he'd be.

Until he can stand up in front of God and everyone and without any weaseling admit that RomneyCare was a disaster and he regrets having any part in it he will never get my vote.

I'm sick to death of @#$%#$^% Big Government GOP idiots and I refuse to support them anymore.
