Romney: Mr. President, what's the rush?

Today's guest columnist in USA TODAY is non other than former Massachussetts Governor Mitt Romney.
"Because of President Obama's frantic approach, health care has run off the rails. For the sake of 47 million uninsured Americans, we need to get it back on track. Health care cannot be handled the same way as the stimulus and cap-and-trade bills. With those, the president stuck to the old style of lawmaking: He threw in every special favor imaginable, ground it up and crammed it through a partisan Democratic Congress. Health care is simply too important to the economy, to employment and to America's families to be larded up and rushed through on an artificial deadline. There's a better way. And the lessons we learned in Massachusetts could help Washington find it."
I make no bones about my preferred candidate in 2012. Let me try to head off any criticisms by stating that I think that Romney is the least-flawed out of any potential front-runners for the GOP, not any sort of "ideal candidate". Insofar as a possible solution the nation's health care matters, I believe that Health Savings Accounts are probably the best way to provide coverage to people, are portable in the event of changing jobs and could help keep prices down. Any other viewpoints on this important subject are welcome to be aired out here.
