Democrats took it upon themselves to effusively praise Mitt Romney for the health care measure he enacted five years ago yesterday as governor of Massachusetts -- which created the basis for the sweeping law President Barack Obama signed last year.

The one and a half minute video, which combines clips of Romney defending the reforms, was released Monday -- the same day that Romney announced his exploratory committee to run for president.

Watch the video, uploaded to YouTube by MassachusettsDems.
