Posted on 06/04/2012 6:47:29 AM PDT by C19fan
One of the few Republicans in the country who's been tirelessly pushing for the implementation of Obamacare at the state level has been tapped to head Mitt Romney's transition team, should he become president.
Former HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt, and his consulting group Leavitt Partners, are the primary advocates within Republican circles for implementation of Obamacare's exchanges. It just so happens that his consultancy is one of the major beneficiaries of the taxpayer funded gold mine of hundreds of millions of dollars in exchange implementation grants.

Another reason not to vote for Obamalite.
Just one more reason to do everything you can to get as many Tea Partiers elected to Congress as possible.
Oh. And don't forget to bring this up to the RNC telemarketer when he or she calls.
Anything to make Romney frightening or drive a wedge. Only Obama supporters sould give this a second look.
We have a candidate, like him or not. He needs to focus all his attention on dislodging the Communist from the White House. The infighting can come after we gain control.
Lets get to defeating one enemy at a time.
Oh Im sure Leavitt is one of those severely conserviest conservatives ...
after all messiah Mitt has chosen him as one of his disciples...
Oh, no-—I’m so shocked! I thought Mitt had really become conservative. /sarc
The “ABO-hold-your-nose-and-vote-for-whatever-drone-the-Republican-Masters-give-us” crowd is going to be sorely disappointed when they wake up a year from now to realize that nothing has changed...
(But, four years from now, they’ll still be singing the same tune.. sigh )
Exchanges in and of themselves may not necessarily be a bad thing. It depends on how many mandates/regulations/state meddling comes along with them. A free-market based private exchange might actually be helpful to a number of individuals and small businesses who have trouble buying coverage.
This is my ‘surprised’ face.
I’m sure the ABO’s will be here any minute calling us names for refusing to drink the Kool-Aid.
This is why we need to make every US House and Senate race a priority. We know that Obama is a destructive and hateful big government liberal. In the event that Romney also turns out to be a big government liberal, we need a Congress that will restrain his liberal urges. Get every patriotic American to the polls in November - we need both houses of Congress, with as big a margin as possible.
Their rally cry:
WE WANNA LOSE
WE WANNA LOSE
[If the people wanted Obamacare, they might as well keep the one they have, rather than turning it over to Romney. Are Romney’s advisors really that stupid? Did he hire a bunch of loser McCain advisors?]
This is absolutely the most dispiriting presidential campaign season I’ve ever experienced in my lifetime.
“Former HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt, and his consulting group Leavitt Partners, are the primary advocates within Republican circles for implementation of Obamacare’s exchanges. It just so happens that his consultancy is one of the major beneficiaries of the taxpayer funded gold mine of hundreds of millions of dollars in exchange implementation grants.”
This makes me sick to my stomach.
IIRC, Romney vowed that he would stop Obamacare [assuming the SC finds it constitutional] on the FIRST day of his presidency.
Is Romney and his advisors on the same page?
At that point, it literally would mean no difference between the two, and 100% of resources would be converted to congress to be able to stonewall everything, especially judges.
I don't believe the implications of this headline.
