I wonder which parts he's keeping and which parts he's repealing... Something tells me he doesn't even know the answer to that. As with everything else about his platform, we'll have to elect him on faith (Just trust me) and find out after he's in and there's nothing we can do about it...

No, thanks!



FULL TRANSCRIPT


MITT ROMNEY:
Well, of course not. I say we're going to replace Obamacare. And I'm replacing it with my own plan. And even in Massachusetts when I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people.

DAVID GREGORY:
So you'd keep that part of the federal plan?

MITT ROMNEY:
Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform. Of course there are a number of things that I like in healthcare reform that I'm going to put in place. One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage. Two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their family up to whatever age they might like. I also want individuals to be able to buy insurance, health insurance, on their own as opposed to only being able to get it on a tax advantage basis through their company.

READ CAREFULLY

He plans on Repealing ALL of Obamacare/Health Care Reform...THEN he claims he will attempt to pass it again ....which every president for the past 30 years before Pres. Obama failed to do.......but keeping the fundemental parts of it that made the Mandate neccessary???? the exchanges, coverage for kids after college, pre-existing conditions...HOW does he plan on paying for it without a mandate??? Universal Coverage???? Was he in France during the whole Healthcare debate??? Didn't realize that congress worked on this for 2 years?
And what will be the difference? He can just change the NAME of the law to Romneycare if he likes, that way the GOP can take credit...wouldn't that save time and money?

He will repeal the whole thing.

Then Promises to pass a new bill with the SAME coverage..

But doesn't explain how it will get paid for???

Fairy dust...BS..and outright lies and false promises IMO.

I am pissed at David Gregory for not asking the most obvious questions..

"If you are repealing Obamacare...how long do you think it will take to get a new bill passed through Congress? And do you think that is even possible in todays political climate?"

"If you intend on keeping the foundation of Obamacare...Covering everyone with pre-existing conditions, offering insurance exchanges...keeping children on thier parents plans etc..Then how would you pay for it?....and after the historic battle to pass the legislation...what is the likelyhood you would be able to do it again?"

"If you agree with the fundementals of Healthcare Reform that are in the bill, why not modify the law rather than repeal?"

That is why Romney is in a better position to judge Obamacare.

Actually he almost bankrupted his state with his health care but got bailed out by the Obama administration.

What Romney and Obama took very much care to keep under the table about the Massachusetts healthcare mess and Obama modeling his Obamacare from the state.



Still the mandate is out of the table thanks to the supreme court the only way to force the people into buying insurance sold by the corrupted insurance companies is with taxes on the hard working class that are now at the mercy of Obamacare.


MASSACHUSETTS GOING BANKRUPT OVER HEALTHCARE

The Federal Government Has Been Bailing Out Romneycare, but Who Will Be Available to Bail Out Obamacare?

That is why I don't believe any of the crap that comes out of the political whores in the nation.

What's funny is that Obamacare is modeled after/very similar to Romney's Massachusetts healthcare. Romney argued this by saying that his was meant for a state though, and he wouldn't support it for the whole country. NOW he is saying he is going to remove the national Obamacare which is modeled on his own plan, so he can institute... his own plan. I mean.. all this after swearing to repeal Obamacare and distancing himself from his own healthcare plan.

I really wish people would wake up. It seems like a small percentage of the country is doing all the thinking for the rest of it. Too bad we don't get their votes too.

Judge it? You mean repeal it right? Or are you dismissing the lies and already justifying his plan to restructure it?

The Republican Congress will not let Romney or Obama get away with NOT REPEALING THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE. Romney has a great record of balancing budgets during his Governorship of Massachussets, 2002 Winter Olympics, and Bain. And his executive experience will tie together the numbers crunching required to balance the U.S. Budget over 8 years.


FAIL.

As governor of MA he was constitutionally bound to present a balanced budget.

At the 2002 Winter Olympics he sought and got $1.3B in federal taxpayer funds to "balance" its budget. As President, you can't borrow from yourself (the people) to balance budgets.

At Bain, the are no budgets to balance...it is a venture company that specializing in CREATING debt to force asset sales.

Total FAIL. Thanks for playing.

The governor before Romney left a deficit for him to clean up. He cleaned up. Romney took a failing Olympics and turned it around. Bain is a business. It profited and saved other businesses. And has a balanced budget.

Where is Obama's balanced budget?

I don't know about that, but the Bain issue is not just a small matter is a big thing, as I read more into, still it doesn't justified that Romney care is bankrupting the state and that the federal government has to intervene in bailing out because already Obama entire campaign was on health care reform modeled to Romney care.

Funny how you get to see how the two deceiving and corrupted parties in the nation complements each others crap.

Something a lot of Romney supporters seem to be missing is that Romney started the individual mandate when he started Romney care in Mass. He all but promised the continuation of the individual mandate when he said they would be keeping pre existing condition coverage. If you have that, you HAVE to have the individual mandate. So Romney does support the individal mandate. Get used to it.

Romney loyalists haven't missed a thing, they just don't care...He is a smiling, rich, white republican....his actual positions on issues or lack there-of?...who cares?

I do not think this is him "weaseling out".

Romney has said over and over and over again, "Repeal and REPLACE Obamacare." but when he says it, the sign under him says, "Repeal Obamacare". Lately he has been tweaking his speeches and leaving out the replace portion (again).

Fact is this........

There is no difference between these Candidates if you believe in smaller Government. You will have Obamacare OR you will have Romney's version of Healthcare. No matter who you vote for, on the issue of Healthcare, your getting one some type of plan.

If you are against war, there is no difference between these two Candidates. Romney will go into Iran. Obama will continue using "kinetic military action" and black ops. BOTH Candidates will stick their nose where it does not belong and try to police the world.

This is because, the same people are in power, regardless if a "democrat or republican" gets in office.
They have an agenda to follow, and it does not include the American People.

The choices the Main Stream Media is offering with a country of 300 million + people is Romney and Obama.
Pick one of those people only.

I think you are witnessing the GOP leadership playing a very slick game right in front of our noses.

First, they say they will repeal Obamcare.

Second, they say they're going to give everyone a waiver.

Third, they say they will not repeal it, just change some things around.

And lastly, we will hear them come out and say that the program is fine just as is and they can live with it!

They are doing this incrementally so that their base will go with the flow so that it doesn't come as a shock when Obamacare doesn't get repealed at all.

Years down the road, if Romney is elected, they will take credit for Obamacare and their base will have forgotten how much they hated it. It will be called a model of a capitalistic healthcare plan, yet it was socialist Marxism under Obama.

Why would Romney repeal Romneycare?


Any Romney supporter that bashed Obamacare should be bashing Romney. But nooooo, you want to be brainwashed and ignore reality.

Pay attention to his lead campaign appointees. They all like obamacare. Romney has no intention of getting rid of it. He just wants to put his stamp on it and say he fixed it.

Just trading one form of tyranny for another. Enjoy.

Never expected him to repeal it. He always liked it.

He even defended obamas position on it when the supreme court ruled it a tax.

His campaign manager likes it as well. Guess who normally becomes cos?

To replace it with his version of "healthcare".

That is what his claim is.

For every action, there is a reaction. My reaction to every poster on this thread is to "deny ignorance(s)." My vote for Romney is well represented in all the polls, as a LIKELY VOTER. Thank you for your concern.

I have honestly never heard him or his supporters mention replacing it once. Given the giant proclamations about his reform never being intended for anything other than state level id expect a few eyebrows to raise when he talks about natonal reform. Has he written two healthcare reforms? I doubt it. Also he said he is keeping the preexistinng condition coverage which goes hand in hand with individual mandate. How dumb are the gop members?

As for both candidates being the same, I am aware, anyone that has read any of my posts knows I supported Paul. I just like pointing out how Romney is the same, and especially in this instance because there will be no repealing.
