Mitt Romney Talks Health Care in Ann Arbor

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Mitt Romney says last year's Democratic-passed health care law is a federal government takeover of health delivery. But he says his somewhat similar Massachusetts law was right for his state.
The likely Republican presidential candidate on Thursday defended the law enacted in 2006 when he was Massachusetts governor. Both the state and federal laws require people to obtain health insurance.
Romney said his program was a state solution to a state problem. He said the Obama-backed law is a power-grab by the federal government to impose a one-size-fits-all plan on all 50 states.
Many conservatives say Romney should distance himself from the Massachusetts law's mandated insurance coverage.
