Just like Romney

Dear Editor:

Thank you, Rep. Salazar, for taking the risk of supporting health-care reform. This legislation, while far from perfect, is a good start and is truly bi-partisan. Even though no Republicans voted for it, it incorporates more than 200 Republican suggestions. The now-controversial individual mandate is nearly identical to what Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney supported in Massachusetts when he governed that state.
