One of the biggest failures of the Romney campaign is their refusal to hold Obama accountable for driving up the cost of health insurance premiums on Americans.  This represents the most regressive tax of all.  As IBD reported yesterday, a new Kaiser Family Foundation study finds that premiums for employer-provided family coverage rose $3,065 — 24% — from 2008 to 2012.  This is even before the main mandates on insurance companies have taken effect.  Once they do, private health insurance will become unaffordable, and many employers will drop their coverage and opt for the cheaper penalty.

Unfortunately, Romney supports the slacker and pre-existing conditions mandates – the biggest drivers of the inflationary cost of premiums.  Hence, he has disarmed us of our most potent attack against Obama.  It’s issues like this that allow us to show the voters how socialist government mandates drive up the cost of the most vital services for all American families.

It’s not too late for Romney to start a new line of attack.
