Sarah Palin isn’t necessarily buying Mitt Romney’s argument about why his individual mandate is so different from the national provision in the Affordable Care Act. Speaking to reporters in Massachusetts this morning, Palin said, “He makes a good argument there that it does. States rights and authority and responsibility allowed in our states makes more sense than a big centralized government telling us what to do,” she said.

“However, even on a state level and even a local level, mandates coming from a governing body, it’s tough for a lot of us independent Americans to accept, because we have great faith in the private sectors and our own families … and our own businessmen and women making decisions for ourselves. Not any level of government telling us what to do.”
