Sarah Palin Fires on Romney From Bunker Hill
It didn’t take long for Sarah Palin today to respond to Romney’s announcement that he will run for president. She fired on him from Bunker Hill.
In remarks made at Bunker Hill in Massachusetts — of all places — Sarah Palin fired a shot at Mitt Romney over the health-care mandate that Romney signed into law in the state in 2006.
The remarks came just before Romney formally announces his presidential bid in nearby New Hampshire, which Palin also plans to visit later today.
“In my opinion, any mandate coming from government is not a good thing, so obviously … there will be more the explanation coming from former governor, Romney, on his support for government mandates,” Palin told reporters today.
When a reporter followed up that Romney has distinguished his state mandate from the federal one President Obama signed into law in 2010, Palin responded that even state mandates are problematic.
