Romney Supports Health Insurance for Everyone

"I think my plan is a good plan that should be adopted by other states...... I would not mandate at the federal level that every state do what we do. But what I would say at the federal level is, "We'll keep giving you these special payments we make if you adopt plans that get everybody insured." I want to get everybody insured. " Mitt Romney 2008 TRANSCRIPT: ABC News

"The former Massachusetts governor said the mandate was necessary to achieve universal coverage in the state.

In order to qualify for the tax exemption, Romney added " gotta have health insurance because we want everybody in the system. No more free riders."

During the interview Romney held up his health care law as a model that "could inform Washington on ways to improve health care for all Americans." CNN Romney's health care mandate included tax penalty.
