Skip to comments.Confirmed: Romneycare = Obamacare
Posted on 01/28/2012 1:22:19 AM PST by OPS4
The Beacon Hill Institute study found that, on average, Romneycare:
cost the Bay State 18,313 jobs;
drove up total health insurance costs in Massachusetts by $4.311 billion;
slowed the growth of disposable income per person by $376; and
reduced investment in Massachusetts by $25.06 million.
And remember that RomneyCare relied on FedGovCare as a sturdy crutch: He also noted the states health-care costs have been heavily subsidized by billions of dollars in federal aid through a Medicaid waiver program.

Lot of stupid Repubs still defending as well.
Stupid no, Rinos yes, and Dems masquerading as Republicans.
So angry about this primary. We are going down in flames, losing our freedoms while some of these knuckle headed voters are worried about Newt’s third wife instead of saving the nation first. Not long, we are not even going to be America. People need to read the details of Obamacare. It’s very scary. Pam Bondi, the current attorney general in Florida who is set to argue the Obamacare case in the Supreme Court as being unconstitutional (cannot force a citizen to buy health care) then she defends Romneycare as a great state plan. She even went further to say that she would be on federal health care panel to make sure all Americans have some type of health care, I guess. I had to clear my eyes while she was talking, to see if that was Hillary lite. What planet are they from-what a nightmare. Maybe the moon would be a nicer place :) God help us.
And yet, look at Mitt Romney’s poll numbers! IMHO, Mitt Romney shouldn’t, even, be a first tier candidate for ‘12 POTUS, because of all of the problems related to RomneyCare, alone! Too many non-leftist voters continue to not do their homework about Mitt Romney and his positions on the issues-both past issues and present issues, while, also, not liking Newt Gingrich, with all of Newt’s personal baggage and with all of Newt’s political baggage.
You know, I am thinking I would rather have obamma as president than Romney. With obamma you know what you are getting and can fight him head-on. With Romney, the guy cannot be trusted, period. He changes his mind which ever way the political winds are blowing. He has no principles!
I’m from MA—it’s a complete disaster, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
I don’t know anyone who likes it, or even knows what the heck it’s costing the state.
Am beginning to wonder how it is; that Repubs agree to these debates. The MSM controls the questions; and so the answers; at least per the spin they put on them; while the real issues/challenges are then largely untouched. Amazing to behold; this chicken/egg farce; that so fashions Repub dialog and information shared.
Meantime; the clock is running; and Repubs are spinning; and the Dems, are laughing at their 'win/win'; because we are doing Obama's Campaign, for him.
Romney’s money is corrupting Republicans wherever he goes.
I understand why no one would take his word for it!
One thing about this, we are seeing the liberal republicans
for what they are. Like Rubio, won his seat with the help of the Tea Party. Where is he? Defending Romney. They get in office and they give us the shaft and become these wimpy representatives.
I agree 100%. Great comments.
But, but, but, Pam Bondi says it’s not.
I’m in Florida and Pam admittied on a FNC program last night (Greta?) that she has already been offered a position on Romney’s team to help “dismantle” O=Care.
Isn’t that illegal? - sounds like pay to play to me.
Do think we need a mutiny of sorts. Certainly, Newt has tried to break out and challenge Media; but lest he be labeled as 'out of control'; he must stay within 'acceptable' debate parameters.
Am having this recurring thought; that by time Campaign season in full swing; and debate challenges are pushing Obama; that he will have a 'crisis' - of convenience or make sure we have a real one - and he will claim 'pressing matters' make it impossible for him to debate issues; and will just offer that he stands on his record.
Whatever the case; we had better prepare for 'ugly'; like we have not seen before.
One thing we do know for certain; our opposition WILL do; ANYthing to hold onto the power they have sucked from our Country and Constitution. There will be no 'going gently'; should the Election so dictate. Allowing that we have one. . .
Ready for my 'chill pill'/lol. . .
What’s going on today is determining Order of Allegiance.
The TeaPariers, Palins, JimRobinsons, FR’s, Cains, Perrys, FredThomas’s are Conservatives first, then, and ONLY then, republicans.
The Roves, Coulters, Priebuses, Christies, Crists, Romeny’s, Drudges, and the like are Republicans first, then, and ONLY then, conservative.
[I’ve left out of the above listing Newt. He is the vessel of the first group, and our next challenge is to ensure his order of allegiance is: The First Group, then, and ONLY then, the second group.]
Romney is a vulture parasite who steals company
money, commits fraud as he/BAIN steal from the Commonwealth
and country, and then he fires the people
and socializes the remnant.
The GOP is now tied for
THE most disgusting party in America.
He will be leggless in a debate with zipperhead and Obamacare and they know it and so do the rino’s. Romney the white Obama
Bill Frist, medical doctor and former Republican Senate Majority Leader (2003 - 2007), said Tuesday that hes for fixing not nixing ObamaCare.
Frists father and brother founded Hospital Corporation of America, the largest private operator of health care facilities in the world. His brother, nephews and other members of his extended family own significant stakes in the company, which is eyeing a public stock offering to resolve looming debt issues. With ObamaCare, hospitals forecast less uncompensated care (bad debt) and their stock prices have been rising accordingly. The improved prospects for publicly traded hospitals appear to have inspired the owners of HCA to take the company public again.
The RinoCrat Oligarchy have themselves invested in Bain...and their personal financial security is probably depenedent on its success...which is in turn dependent upon a Romney Candidacy.
Think Madoff...but with legislative leverage to meet the calls....
I am for going back to patient-doctor transactions only.....nothing else but a competitive free market. Local doctor, local pharmacy, local hospital. No health insurance company, No ObamaCare.
