As part of his multimillion-dollar marketing campaign, smooth talking Mitt Romney today rolled out a new ad, entitled "Jihad," that aims to distract from his complete lack of foreign policy credentials and litany of blunders on international affairs.

"Employer insurance is failing because of rapid cost increases and the inability to provide high-value care. CED's report explains that quality, affordable universal coverage is neither achievable nor sustainable unless we transform the delivery model.

The CED plan is not Medicare for all, and it is not markets for all," said Dr. Jerome Grossman, Senior Fellow, John F. Kennedy School of Government and Director of the Harvard/Kennedy School Health Care Delivery Policy Program.
