Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney appeared Friday on Fox and Friends for an interview about his presidential campaign. On Thursday Romney officially announced his candidacy in New Hampshire.
Predictably, Romney was questioned about the “Romneycare” health insurance reform that he enacted as governor. He said that it was, “right for the people of Massachusetts” and re-iterated his opposition to a national model based on the same plan.
“It’s not the model for the nation… in Massachusetts, 93 percent of people were insured,” Romney said, mentioning that fixing health insurance cannot be done nationally because of states like Texas, where Romney said 25 percent of the population is uninsured.
