Long-Lost Emails Show Just How Much Romney Loved the Individual Mandate

Mitt Romney didn’t just want an individual health care mandate when he was governor of Massachusetts, he wanted to publicly shame companies who didn’t provide insurance with a quarterly ad in the lamestream media. When Romney’s term as governor ended, his staff deleted emails from a server computer, seemingly wiping them from the public record for good. But The Wall Street Journal’s Mark Maremont found a cache through a public records request. Romney used a private Hotmail address to discuss how to negotiate with Democrats to pass the legislation. Maremont’s find is fascinating as it shows how much Romney was involved in negotiations and how passionately he argued for the individual mandate, the one part of Obamacare that conservative voters hate most.
