New e-mails show Romney's efforts to pass healthcare bill
(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – New e-mails are surfacing, showing Mitt Romney's efforts to pass the now controversial Massachusetts health care law.
When Romney left his post as Massachusetts governor, his aides removed all e-mails and took hard drives from state-owned computers.
However, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that a group of e-mails were not deleted. They reportedly show the former governor was closely engaged in negotiations with top Democratic state leaders when drafting the health care law.
The law requires everyone in the state to have or buy health insurance.
Romney called the overhaul his top achievement as governor, and although he still defends the bill, he has played it down among the GOP's attack on President Barack Obama's federal health care overhaul.
