Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was all smiles in 2006 as he marched into historic Faneuil Hall behind a fife and drum corps and ascended a giant stage festooned with a banner that proclaimed “Making History in Healthcare.”

Romney was about to sign a law making his state the first in the nation to effectively guarantee universal health coverage, a landmark the governor would then call “an achievement” that “comes once in a generation.”
