I understand that argument. But when does the cost of getting those votes become too high? How much more conservative support will he lose because of it?
The last I looked the idea of forcing free Americans to buy healthcare was not very popular in this country. So why is Romney portraying himself as someone who thinks it is?

Its all too high after 4 years of Obama..most states already have a way to deal with this..maybe just leaving it a state issue is the way to go..All Dems are trying to do with healthcare is get the cash in DC ..taking more power and cash from states..fed mandates have made everything impossable

The reason is that Romney has bought in the liberal fallacy that if a politician spends taxpayers dollars on universal programs to "help" people then you are compassionate.
Notice Romney didn't say "I am compassionate I gave out of my own pocketbook millions of dollars to charity just last year." Instead he uses the example of him passing RomneyCare as an example of his compassion.
If Romney has already accepted the moral matrix of the left (i.e., spending taxpayers dollars= compassion), how is he ever going to be able to cogently explain any right-leaning legislation he'll support to Congress and the American people?
“So why is Romney portraying himself as someone who thinks it is? “
You haven’t figured it out yet? It’s because Romney is a dumb***. Everything he says is carefully weighed and negotiated. He doesn’t even understand what he says half the time, especially when it’s conservatism. Why do you think he always sounds so goofy when talking about how severely conservative he is? The only thing he can be depended on to do is go left when the pinch is on. Why? Because leftist ideas are dumb ideas that people with small minds accept at face value.
