Finally

I wondered when someone was finally going to go after Mitt Romney over two provisions of his health care reform in Massachusetts, namely, the fact that the reforms mandate taxpayer funding of abortions and permit Planned Parenthood to designate one of the members of the health care advisory board set up by the law.

Now, according to Katherine Seelye of the New York Times, Newt Gingrich is prepared to raise the issue. Indeed, Gingrich mentioned it last night in an interview with Sean Hannity. Seelye mentions the issue was raised at a Dec. 21 media avail with Gingrich. Hmmmmm. I wonder who that could have been?

The most important aspect of this story is that the health care reforms came AFTER Romney's conversion on the abortion issue, not before.
