A detailed Huffington Post review of Romney’s budget proposals from his first year in office, however, reveals that he advocated deep cuts to programs serving the state’s most vulnerable — even when those cuts had little effect on the state’s fiscal position. Romney’s aggressive reductions to social programs did not earn support across the aisle. The state legislature ended up overriding more than 115 Romney vetoes in his first year as governor.
“There was no magic in the Romney approach,” recalled former Democratic state Rep. Dan Bosley. It was “cut as many social programs as you can.” Bosley added: “If we didn’t override every one of his vetoes, we overrode most of his vetoes. … There wasn’t a bipartisan effort to run government.”"
