Mitt Romney may have thought he was just being a heartless
bastard realist during his appearance last night on Jay Leno, but what he ended up doing was making the perfect case for the so-called "individual mandate" in the Obama Affordable Care Act:
JAY LENO: Well, suppose if they were never insured before?
MITT ROMNEY: Well, if they’re 45 years old and they show up they say ‘I want insurance because I’ve got a heart disease,’ it’s like hey guys, we can’t play the game like that. You’ve got to get insurance when you are well, and then if you get ill then you’re going to be covered.
