Lance - I'll let you in on a little secret from the perspective of a fiscal conservative (a REAL fiscal conservative, not one of those phonies who thinks it's ok to throw money away on people as long as you like them). We like the mandate. It's the only part of the health care bill we DO like. But we have to pretend like we hate it because it's the magic bullet we need to overturn the whole thing. Of course Romney isn't allowed to say that, so he points out the unfairness of people who don't pay their premiums but still want someone else to cover their bills when they get sick.

To Republicans flabbergasted by Mitt Romney’s decision to build a massive beach house during a presidential run about the struggling middle class, fear not: your presumptive nominee understands your concerns. In fact, he understands them so well that he once used the exact same issue against the Democratic presidential nominee.

“There’s a senator from my state who wants to get elected president,” Romney said at the time. “I don’t know why he would want to do that because he would have to move into a smaller house.”

Republicans will never support a flip-flopping, wealthy, French speaking, out-of-touch elitist from Taxachussets. I know because Karl Rove said so.
