Romney tiptoes a fine line on healthcare
Mitt Romney's opponents say his Massachusetts health care law is so similar to President Obama's that he'll be unable to draw distinctions as the GOP's presidential candidate, but a new poll out last week finds that voters don't see the two laws the same. The results of the Kaiser Family Foundation survey bode well for Mr. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, who has walked a fine line as he tried to defend his own legislation while painting the president's as destructive. Of Republicans who were familiar with the Massachusetts and national laws, 62 percent said they see Mr. Obama's law as different from Mr. Romney's law, while 38 percent said the two laws were similar.
