Healthcare at the heart of America Election Race

Even though the US presidential elections are still one year down the line, the battle to secure the nomination of the Republican Party is on full swing. As expected healthcare policies are very much a hot topic in the recent debates between the candidates.
Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, has taken much flack due the healthcare reforms that he pioneered when he was in charge. These reforms, which aimed to make healthcare universal, are very similar to the individual mandate introduced by Obama that forces individuals to buy a private medical insurance policy.

The following video by front runner Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, is an example of the animadversion that Romney's healthcare policies as a governor of Massachusetts generate accross the certain sections of the Republican Party.
