Ed Gillespie – Romney’s Campaign Advisor – Lobbied For The Individual Mandate

Ed Gillespie – Mitt Romney’s new campaign adviser – was a lobbyist for a federal individual health insurance mandate two years before President Obama embraced the idea, the Washington Examiner reports.

Gillespie wasn’t just one of CAHR’s lobbyists, he was their Republican headliner, touted in their press releases.

So while Romney can make a federalist distinction about himself — that he supports some state health-insurance mandates, but not federal health-insurance mandates — Romney advisor Gillespie (who did not immediately return my call or email seeking comment) seems stuck admitting he was a for a federal-level mandate when insurers were paying him to be for it, and is against it now that Obama is defending it.

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
