PolitiFact's push poll resurfaces

PolitiFact continues to push the idea that ObamaCare is not so different at all from RomneyCare.  RomneyCare, after all, established an Independent Payment Advisory Board in Massachusetts to help control the growth of Medicare spending ... oh, wait, never mind.
To help you get ready for next week's arguments on the health care law before the U.S. Supreme Court, we will be publishing some helpful guides and summaries. For our first installment, we're re-publishing our fiendishly difficult quiz to see if you know the difference between RomneyCare and ObamaCare.
What a laugh!  What is it about the RomenyCare/ObamaCare comparison that helps somebody "get ready" for the arguments before the Supreme Court?  Did RomneyCare proponents justify a power to enact the law according to either the "necessary and proper" clause or the Constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce?  How much "interstate commerce" goes on within the borders of Massachusetts?

Tuesday's item was just an excuse to dust off PolitiFact's RomneyCare comparison push-poll, complete with the helpful hints from two past PolitiFact items where the port-listing fact checkers find "Mostly True" claims that RomneyCare is identical to ObamaCare.
