What the Court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States and that is I will act to repeal Obamacare."
"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."
0bama had the democrats ram this bitter legislation (or tax) down our throats and now Romney tells us he's giving us seconds?
This ONE thing means he's not getting my vote. Let 0bama finish trashing Amerika with 4 more years.
One more politician, one lie too many.
go back to DU troll
You’re talking apples and oranges.
Job One is to repeal Obamacare.
Sensible helath reforms can come like it should have come—with debate, votes and a chance for the voice of the American people to be heard.
But we have to get rid of the monster that is Obamacare first, so Mitt has my vote.
"Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform
No he not, there are still elements of the Health Care system that need to be fixed. Just getting rid of Obamacare is not a solution.
>> Let 0bama finish trashing Amerika with 4 more years. <<
Kitty, kitty, kitty.
I heard what he said.
I read what he said.
You need to take a reading/listening comprehension course.
Health care reform and Obamacare are two different animals. Yes, he intends to repeal Obamacare. And yes, he intends to draft a replacement for it that will handle reform in the right way.
How about this? IF Romney is elected, he lets the House and Senate do THEIR JOB and WE will tell our employee what WE want him to do. Veto or sign into law.
It pays to actually listen to the point being made by the candidate not just squeal in hysteria to the spin put on it by your Democrat Propaganda masters.
Shut up and dont vote
Why would you be surprised? Obama and Oromney work for the same masters. Hell, my bet is that Oromney will be told to take a dive in the 9th round so that Obama can continue as TOTUS.
So you have bought the premise that the Federal Government need to “solve” the health care “problem”.
Just like your candidate.
He can propose legislation be passed by the congress. Let him say that. NOT SAY “Well, I’m not getting rid of all of healthcare reform”
First he can’t get rid of anything. That’s NOT a president’s job ... is it. It’s the job of congress and WE tell our representatives how they should vote.
Try reading some of my posts for the past 10 years.
REPEAL IT FIRST. Then replace it with a plan that is 180 degrees in the other direction. DEREGULATE insurance companies with respect to where they do buisness and and what rates they negotiate. That increases competition and gives healthcare providers more choices and room to do business. TORT reform. You want to lower the cost that doctors and hospitals charge considerably? Help reduce their malpractice insurance premiums and stop forcing doctors to order MRIs and CAT scans for a sprained ankle. If you want pre-existing conditions covered, that is acceptable but then don't tell insurance companies what premiums they have to charge. This forces them to lose money and they have to raise rates across the board to make up for it. This is called "high risk" insurance similar to flood insurance, reckless driver auto insurance (D&D record), ect. Obamacare legislates the forced loss of proffit for insurance companies. It is designed to put them out of business.
If now he is saying he accepts the premise that the Federal Government must take the lead in health care reform, his defense is no longer a defense. It is revealed for what it was - a slimy ruse.
Should he be elected President, he will promote big government; he will protect abortion by using the “health of the mother” rationale; he will promote the gay agenda; and he will pass amnesty for illegal aliens.
Conservatives who are now supporting Romney will be bitterly betrayed.
Romney said he is not going to repeal obamacare because he likes much of it, and why not, he is the father of obamacare.
He is saying he is just going to tweak it. (today anyway)
Oh, please—knock it off.
Are you going to vote for Obama?
Don’t you think insurance should be across state lines?
Want to keep the death panels?
Want to keep Fed government control of all healthcare?
Romney and Ryan want to return this to the states to administer. Who will do a better job?
In 57 days, your country will be kaput and you’re arguing about even voting for Romney/Ryan.
Over at DU, they probably like the idea of using the government to force health insurers to take on people with pre-existing conditions. After all, welfare’s real popular with those leftie types.
You watch out Oak, get out your flame protection suit.
There are many so called conservatives on FR that don’t want to read the true.
Guess what? Using the power of the state to force insurers to keep "children" past the age of 26 on their parents' policies, and using the power of the state to force insurers to take on people with pre-existing conditions isn't the way to go about fixing the system.
Good grief. Doesn't anybody here actually believe in the "free market" anymore?
There were actually a few decent ideas that snuck into the bill (not that anyone would have known, as nobody read it). But the job certainly needs to be full repeal and then go back and try to pass to good elements by themselves. Selective repeal would just be a mess.
O’s health care bill was passed unread by congress. Job one is to get rid of it. It should never have been passed by a congress that took seriously its constitutional role.
Then congress can do its job. Write its own bill. Debate the bill. Hammer out an agreement between the parties that the country can live with.
Like ought to have been done the first time.
So you don;t like Romney, fine, but quite frankly, he is the only person in a position to beat Obama in 57 days.
So, he's my man in order to save the country from another four years of the usurper and his Commie Choom gang.
You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. There is no third option.
I would love to, but your sign on date is 4/15/09.
Exactly right, OG.
The only long-term benefit I can see to Romney winning is that because his single term will be such a disappointing failure, enough of these "conservatives" here on FR and elsewhere might finally reach the point where they're willing to ditch the GOP and create a genuine conservative party that could appeal to independents and moderates on the basis of solid stands on principles and leadership, instead of unconvincing fearmongering. May the GOP go the way of the Whigs, and be replaced by a party that actually stands for something.
I am showing you that the idea that we have a choice is an illusion. The election about who can manage the growth of the nanny state most effectively.
Impeach rogue politicians that do not represent the will of the majority of their constituents. I say impeach because they are so entrenched by Gerrymandering they are all but impossible to vote out.
Yep, he even said during a TV interview that he was “glad” that Obama drew on Romneycare for inspiration.
(Go to 1:05)
In two months, Milquetoast Mitt will fall flat on his face because he impresses nobody and turns off prospective supporters with his constant flip-flops.
We've told them ... they know what we want. But if we don't get Obama out of office, it will be a futile effort undoing what he's done.
Oh, good grief, that music is boring.
If I don’t do what you want, I am part of the problem.
No, the problem is that so called conservatives roll over to the GOPe because next time we’ll get a real conservative candidate, really I promise lets just win this and then worry about that later.....
guess what each time the Republican candidate is more liberal than the last.
Sorry sweetie I am not dancing to that tune any longer.
Obama thanks you for your vote.
try the “NEXT” page. BACK!!! BACK!!!
You got that right.
Great link by the way.
I have been voting for 40 years—I really don’t need you to show me anything.
The only illusion I see is that people voting for Obama means America surviving as a country with him getting another term.
All politicians are imperfect, and all of them lie. In all forty years, it has been a choice between two imperfect candidates—this is no different.
The question is—who will do the least damage, given the choice we have.
A liberal ex-governor from Massachusetts who will repeal Obamacare and believes in free enterprise, or a no good Communist community organiozing, America hating usurper who has had four years experience in ruining AMerica and wants to finish the job?
57 days—one choice.
>> Try reading some of my posts for the past 10 years.
I tried, ‘ratstool, but you’ve only been here for three.
BTW, you don’t get extra “seniority” for the time you spend at DU.
Now why don’t you take a cue from Clint Eastwood and go do something to yourself.
Ron Paul said so?
Romney is NOT going to repeal obamacare, no matter how many times you say it does not make it true.
Romney is not even saying he (today anyway) is going to repeal it, all he says now is that he is going to tweak it.
I choose to vote Constitution Party, joining my voice with those telling the GOP-e "We're off your plantation."
Since April 15, 2009.
Quite frankly, I don’t see you offering a solution to the dilemma at hand.
You just snipe from the sidelines where you put yourself, as if you won’t be suffering the fate all of us will suffer if Zippy gets another shot at “transforming America”.
You can dance to any tune you want, especially after 1/20/13, because FR’s days will be numbered before it is shut down due to “an unseemly level of political dissent and hate”.
Then you can sing “Fa-la-la-la-la-lah” with your fingers in your ears, and skip around deliriously. Actually that would be more productive than what you do now on FR 24 hours a day.
Romney, the grandfather of socialism... That guy lied? No way! After all he has a conservative co- pilot and don’t forget the R after his name.
“posts” not page. Read over. I have been posting here since 1994. The page was modified date is meaningless.
Wow, I am sure they will take note of that.You might want to tip them off in advance so they don't miss the point.
>> I have been posting here since 1994.
You’ve been posting here since before Free Republic was started? Really, troll?
If the replacement equals what is repealed , you have a point. Otherwise, you don't. Since the two are NOT equivalent, I'll go with the latter position.
