Romney says Individual Mandate is a "Conservative Concept"

No, Mitt, it isn't. Just because Newt Gingrich and the Heritage Foundation once advocated it does not make it a conservative concept. Conservatism is not simply whatever famous conservatives say. It's an ideology that DOES NOT CHANGE, that says the role of the government is to defend individual rights. It is NOT the right of any government, state or federal or local, under any conservative ideology, to tell people what they must or must not buy. There is no getting around that. Abandon the individual mandate, or abandon the support of limited government conservatives in this primary. There is no third option.
