And no, we're not talking about his plan from when he was governor, we're talking about his current plan. Talk about Romneyhood. Talk about abandoning the 47%:

Under Romney’s proposed health care plan, American families buying non-group health insurance would pay nearly double what they pay under Obamacare, according to a new study by Families USA entitled "ObamaCare versus RomneyCare versus RomneyCandidateCare."

not only would American families pay more for coverage, many fewer Americans would have health insurance at all. By 2016, 41.9 million more people would be uninsured under Romney than with Obamacare.

...

Likewise, Romney’s proposed federal cuts to Medicaid would result in many fewer children from poor families having access to health care, The Huffington Post’s Jeffrey Young reported in August.

Despite its apparent reduction in coverage for millions of Americans, Romney says his plan does provide an option for the uninsured: the emergency room.

So, what's Mitt's plan? Kick America's poor out of the system and leave them with only emergency room treatment. That includes children. Then force average American families to pay health insurance companies twice as much with fewer protections than under Obama care - all while Mitt and Ann Romney and their rich donors are laughing all the way to the bank. This issue alone shows that Romney is unfit to be president, much less work in government.

If the Romneys' plan for health care isn't a sin, then the word no longer has any meaning in this country.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
