A Compassionate, Liberal Romney. {Video}

“I go across this state and I see 600,000 people who don’t have insurance. I want universal coverage. I want everyone in Massachusetts and this country to have insurance.”

“I think we ought to start by saying we’re going to have portability. We’re also going to make sure people can’t be denied on the basis of pre-existing illness. We need to have a subsidy…for those people who are low-income and can’t afford insurance. We need to make sure that all people—not just corporations—can deduct, on a tax basis, the cost of their premiums. We also need to make sure there’s not discrimination in rates between big companies and small companies. All of these things, I believe, are a first step to reaching universal coverage.”
