Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, used a USA Today op-ed to once again slam President Obama’s health care law requiring individuals to have health insurance—and take a jab at fellow Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care law.

“Today's messed up medical system is a result of 40 years of government interference in the process. Regulations, inflation, tax laws, federal mandates to provide care through corporate-run HMOs, interference in providing insurance, massive subsidies, and licensing have all played a negative role in the delivery of medical care in the United States,” Paul wrote. “The idea that more government involvement in health care is the solution, especially at a time when the nation is dealing with record deficits and debt, is preposterous. And the promised effectiveness of forced mandate health care is easily disproven by looking at how such a system has worked in Massachusetts.”
