Politico | David Axelrod: Romneycare Was ‘Template’ for Obamacare

David Axelrod is singing the praises of “Romneycare” – yet again.

The former White House senior adviser smiled and laughed as he twisted the knife in Mitt Romney on Friday, saying that the ex-Massachusetts governor’s health plan “inspired” President Obama and was a “template” for the White House’s own national program.

"I mean, quite seriously. It was a template, apart from all the jokes," Axelrod, who has repeatedly talked up Romney’s plan, said on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe."

Egged on by the show’s hosts, he called Romneycare – which mandates that individuals have health care coverage, like Obama’s plan – is something Romney should embrace.

"People in the state like it, and he ought to be proud of it, and he ought to embrace it. And one day, I think he will," the former White House senior adviser said. “That work inspired our own health care plan.”
