Romney Say He Likes 'A Number Of Things' About Obamacare

(CNSNews.com) - If Mitt Romney becomes president, he says he won't get rid of Obamacare in its entirety.

In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, Romney indicated he would keep the provisions dealing with pre-existing conditions and young adults:

"Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform," Romney told NBC's David Gregory. "Of course, there are a number of things that I like in health care 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-- 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," Romney said.

Romney told Gregory he's going to "replace Obamacare" with his own plan:

"And, you know, even in Massachusetts where I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people."

Super majorities won’t do anything. The majority of the super majority will follow their leader: Mittens Thurston Howell III

Romney will lose Massachusetts because of RomneyCARE.
Americans HATE ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE.
But like Obama, Romney does not care.

Hey, I got a great idea! Likes run for president alright? And we will take an issue that a huge majority of Americans do not agree with, an issue that our opponent supports..

And we will support most of it!

Ya, that’s the ticket!

(Romney, you idiot. STOP SUPPORTING OBAMA’S SIGNATURE PLAN!!)

Only one candidate ever lost both his birth state and the state of his residence and still won the election: James Polk in 1844. In order to win, Romney will have to be the second; he both was born and lives in Massachusetts.

That tune had better change fast or he will lose the election, period.

The GOP has gotten even WORSE than the Whigs were when their party imploded, but we don’t seem to be offered any chance to throw them out.

Romney’s operators were as much responsible for vilifying Sarah Palin back in 2008 as the left wing press and the DNC. Now we see WHY he wanted McCain and Palin to lose.

Both parties, Democrat and Republican, have been taken over by the forces of corruption. It doesn’t give us a lot to hope for this November.

I wish we could have agreed on a write-in candidate, but those currently on offer are all pretty feeble.

None of this is a surprise. We knew very well, from his record, that Mitt would be no better than Obama Lite.

Third party? I think Nader is running again...could siphon enough votes away from Obama for the good candidate on the right to win.

At least Obama waited until after inauguration to break his promises — Romney’s didn’t even last that long.

Mittens should have just said that he will repeal Obamacare and then let Congress address any changes through well thought out legislation.

Romney is only in this for the money and his deityship.

There is no conservative principles from him.
HE defends Obama. HE defends Obama’s plans
and that includes ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE.
The GOP is delusional.

"Romney indicated he would keep the provisions dealing with pre-existing conditions and young adults"

Then he will have to keep the mandate also. You can't cover preexisting conditions (which is actually a guarantee not insurance) with out the mandate to subsidize it. Otherwise people would just wait until they got sick to buy the coverage.

I’m shocked you’re shocked.

This is coreless Romney just being coreless Romney! Where do we think Obamacare came from? Romneycare. Two pusher consultants of his worked with the administration to implement it, right down to the boot on the neck of the Catholics, as in Massachusetts.

Romney doesn’t look and sound Marxist so obviously as does Obama, but if evidence, proof, and a legislative record serve a purpose anymore, please, show me in Romney’s record so far, where he differs
from Obama’s actions.

I would love to see a shred of conservative evidence from Romney.

We have been trapped.

You said it! This is no longer insurance. It’s astonishing to me that the word “insurance” can be used in the same sentence! The complicit media and ignorant public grow this lie.

Do we not know a government mandate is what it is - a top down social order to the masses, whose “workers” are forced to cooperate with the enforcers, pay for the cost and for the enforcement tactics stacked against them, exactly what is being perpetrated against Catholic religious liberty is now against liberty in general.

I’ve said it before.

I think he IS trying to loose. Just like McCain did.

There is no R or D party. They are just names. It’s them against we the people.

Yup. Throw the election so they can blame the Dems for 4 more years.

At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if he nominates Hillary to replace Holder.

Both parties have to Work Together for the American People.

I keep an airsickness bag close to my desk. It comes in handy whenever I hear the word Bipartisan.

correct.. lets look at the evidence.

Mitt is pretty much a policy copy of Obama. I don’t think Mitt hates america like Obama, but when it comes to the core issues, there is not much difference.

House leadership. Talks a good talk, jumps up and down, makes a good speech to the cameras.. Then, cries and gives in.

Senate leadership.. Why do they show up for work anyways?

They are all the same party. Regardless of the name. There are a few exceptions like my congress women Michele, however, they are far out numbered.

It matters not who wins in November. we are f&$ked either way you cut it.

After a Mittens term there will be no middle America to connect with. Same goes for the kenyan, of course. The kenyan will probably get violent sooner than the manager, though.

Mitt likes the touchy-feelie freebie candy apparently.

He does not like the taxes, regulation or heavy-handed cost controls.

Meaning that if he gets his way he’ll bankrupt the country with this thing even faster than Obama.

Romney and his campaign are making John Kerry look reliable and unchanging...

The sad truth... ObamaSCare was based on RomneySCare... so of course Romney will like “a number of things”.

So he’s not even elected President and he’s already backing out of campaign promises.

Saying that he would adopt a few things in a 2,000+ page law is not backing out of a campaign promise to repeal that law.

We need to remain cool headed, in what is going on. Gov. Romney has been slowly moving to the right. Does that mean that he has completely abandoned any "liberal" ideas? Of course not, That is why we need to continue to work to influence him in the right direction. We do not do that by insulting him!

Because reason is on our side, we need to always appeal to reason--even when at times, few are listening. It is still the only way to begin to win back public opinion. (The America that ever could have voted for Obama, has to be won back!) See Why & How To Support Romney/Ryan.

You’re right! We need to all get together and carry the water for Mitt!

Rah Rah Rah! Sis Boom Bah!

Because without us All drinking his putrid Kool Aid, he’ll probably Lose the Election.

We Get him elected by the skin of his Liberal Teeth, and then help the RATS Impeach him at the first chance we get so we’ll have 3 years of President Ryan.

Ohioan, are you Listening to yourself? Romney is slowly moving to the Right?

When we Vote this time, we get Box D or Box R. Fill in the Box.

And it Doesn’t matter One Bit which Box we choose, short of Obama being more likely to sic the National Guard on us than Romney.

Because what’s In those Boxes,

is the Same democRAT no matter which one we choose. We have been HAD, yet again.
