Oops, he did it again

Our Man Myth Romney is out with a new Medicare plan that is long on rhetoric and short on specifics. And this should surprise us how?

Romney, trying to ignore polls that show only a quarter of Republican primary voters support him, hopes to look and sound presidential and take direct aim at Barack Obama. He apparently thinks tired, rejected Republican ideas are the way to go.

The solution to the high cost of Medicare, he says, is to privatize the system and let market competition rule.

Excuse me, but isn't the market's failure the reason why our health care costs are higher than anywhere else in the world?

RomneyCare II is a voucher plan straight out of the Paul Ryan playbook. Well, it appears to be even though Myth decided to put forth a plan without details. Perhaps so he can change his mind if things get too hot?

Even more telling than the lack of details is the lack of availability to talk about it:
Romney’s campaign did not respond to multiple requests for details and comment. A Nov. 4 press release issued about his plan said that the candidate “continues to work on refining the details of his plan.’’ In a fiscal policy speech that day, Romney said seniors on Medicare and those close to retirement would not be affected by his proposal.
The Mittser always has his painted side to the audience.
