Mitt Romney has an Onion problem.

Mitt Romney, candidate for President, is often accused of having a “healthcare” problem.

The latest media outlet to question his healthcare policies while he was governor of Massachusetts is the Onion. In an interview there, he said he was sorry.

“Every day I am haunted by the fact that I gave impoverished Massachusetts citizens a chance to receive health care,” Romney told reporters Wednesday, adding that he feels ashamed whenever he looks back at how he forged bipartisan support to help uninsured Americans afford medicine to cure their illnesses. “I’m only human, and I’ve made mistakes. None bigger, of course, than helping cancer patients receive chemotherapy treatments and making sure that those suffering from pediatric AIDS could obtain medications, but that’s my cross to bear.”

“My hope is that Republican voters will one day forgive me for making it easier for sick people—especially low-income sick people—to go to the hospital and see a doctor,” Romney added. “It was wrong, and I’m sorry.”

We’ll see what the voters think. For now, I’m withholding judgment.

(FYI: The Onion is faux news, also known as satire).
