Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has just wandered off the GOP script on Obamacare, which some Republicans contend is a deeply troubling socialist scheme, others an authoritarian government takeover of the health care sector.
Not so Schwarzenegger. In a recent interview with “60 Minutes,” the former Republican governor had this to say of the individual mandate at the center of Obamacare: “Forget Obamacare. This is a principle that goes back hundreds of years. People need to be insured so when you have an accident out there, or when something catastrophic happens to you, that you’re covered and there’s not someone else [who] has to pay for you. That is as simple as that.”
