Elect Mitt Romney in '08

Mitt Romney's health care plan sounds pretty . . . , well, Mormon. As Edmund Haislmaier describes it, it could have come from Mormon Scripture:
Having first proposed the creation of more and better health-insurance choices and more rational and efficient subsidies, Romney essentially says, "You will be free to choose, but your choices will have consequences."

A conference committee of the Massachusetts legislature is now hammering out the details of the final legislation. Given that Massachusetts has a legislature in which Democrats outnumber Republicans by about five to one, the fact that Romney's proposal has gotten this far is itself a testament to the power of good ideas — as well as to the political skills of one particular governor and his team.
