Quote of the Day: Mitt Romney on Preexisting Conditions

From Romney flack Eric Fehrnstrom, pressed on Romney's debate claim that "preexisting conditions are covered under my plan":

We'd like to see states do what Massachusetts did. In Massachusetts we have a ban on pre-existing conditions.

Translation: Romney's healthcare plan doesn't cover people with preexisting conditions. He thinks the states should do that.

Shorter translation: Romney lied.
