Santorum: Romneycare a 'Real Scarlet Letter'That's what we'd expect Santorum to say, but in tonight's debate in South Carolina, he defended his vote against a national right to work, which he says he was personally for, on the grounds that he was elected to represent the people of Pennsylvania which has no right-to-work law, and so felt that he should reflect their sentiments. Wasn't Romney just representing the people of Massachusetts who were paying the medical bills for free riders taking advantage of emergency rooms, particularly since universal health care was a popular idea with the 85% Democrat controlled legislature. Given that setting, Romneycare made sense for a governor of Massachusetts. Romney had made enough statements promoting it that it makes no sense for him to try to evade the issue or pretend he wasn't in favor of it. Of course, he could say now, ala Santorum, that he didn't think the whole idea of universal health care was a good idea, but he was just representing the will of the people.
