Romney Supporter Says Romney's Plan Is RomneyCare For All States?

From what I see, it's, how do I put this gently, "Blogger Nonsense."

Although I can see where there would be confusion, the surrogate seems to be talking about the "Romney Plan" even though she was asked about RomneyCare vis a vis ObamaCare.

"Romney Plan" I take to mean the plan Romney has suggested for health care. That is, his campaign platform plan. Which contains the usual widgets that everyone talks about.

Which is not the same as "RomneyCare." The woman never says anything like what it's claimed she says -- she never says, as the headline at Gateway Pundit would have it, that Romney's plan is for RomneyCare in each state.

Obviously he has a plan regarding health care and has talked about that. And obviously, this being his own plan, he's in favor of it. But it's all the typical stuff like cross-state insurance sales.

One can have a reasonable suspicion that Romney thinks that RomneyCare would be a perfectly good plan for a state to implement. This suspicion could arise from various bits of data, like Romney directly saying that RomneyCare would be a perfectly good plan for a state to implement. And having previously written in book a line that suggests that RomneyCare would be a perfectly good plan for a state to implement.

But that is not "Romney's Plan" for health care (on a federal level), and the surrogate does not say it is.

This isn't "spin." I'm telling you what the woman actually said -- actually, listen for yourself. Don't take my word for it.

Show me the passage where she says "Romney wants RomneyCare for each state."

She doesn't. That's the spin. She's speaking of "Romney's plan," and it does not appear as if she thinks she's making headlines. Why assume that she must be making Huge News by announcing Romney's got a secret plan (now out of the bag, whoops!) to replace his stated plan with "RomneyCare for everyone"?
