Those things are far from ideal.
The idea of insurance as a hedge against utter disaster has devolved into maintenance plans for health. It would be like car insurance that covered oil changes.
That said, the insurance plans DO get deals with health care providers that Joe Blow walking in off the street can’t get.
Is there some way purchasing power can be brought to bear so that those who have potentially costly conditions can at least get a reasonable deal when caring for them? It will need lots of discussion and debate. No way some committee fed on pizza and beer can hack it out in a month.
Keep it up, Willard. Keep it up. Remember, even if you do get elected, we won’t hesitate to show up en masse at the Mall like we did in 2009...
Planned implosion .
I wasn’t going to vote for Rombag until a couple of days after he picked Ryan. Then I did some deep thought and some reading about DBA 0kaka.
DBA 0 will utterly destroy our country. He and those who put him where he is are enemies. They are infinitely worse than Rombag, as much as I loathe Rombag. Rombag will not set up detention camps for good AMericans, nor force euthanasia on us, nor kiss the a** of Muslim Brotherhood Jew haters, and on and on and on.
DBA 0bama is utterly dangerous. Rombag is merely a scum sucking liberal pantywaist Republican. He buys us time.
He tossed in “health of the mother” without defining it. That asks for clarification, not knee jerk name calling.
I guess he is trying to keep me away from the voting booths
I’m about ready to say screw it and not vote at all . The whole system is a sick , perverted joke .
third party? nope thanks! another troll sent to muddy the waters and insure an O’Thuga win; Romney’s what we got, Ryan’s what we got. - i’ll crawl over broken glass pushing a peanut with my nose to vote for anyone but the biggest fraud that has EVER been perpetrated on the American people - Barack Hussein Obama - BEGONE ICHABOD!!
He doesn’t want to destroy America. That’s a plus.
He’s still a lib. though.
So yes, by a matter of degree, he is better than Obomber but I doubt I could vote for him in good conscious.
I hate Rombag as much as anyone. As much as you do, if not more.
But I hate DBA 0bama infintely more becuase he is infinitely more dangerous - he and his handlers. By fighting against Rombag, you are fighting for 0kaka, because he is very unfortunately the only other alternative, due to very great misfortune.
Look at it this way - we all hated McCain. I held my nose and voted for him, mainly because of Palin.
Would our country be better off if McCain had won, or not?
We would. Because we would not have a muzzie/faggot/commie/black racist/illegal freak stinking up the WH and destroying our country and causing havoc in various places in the world, such as the middle east.
He said he will keep the ‘Good parts’
Total surprise! :)
“He is not; he wants to keep many facets of Obamacare”
Your evidence to date is slim to none.
In the entire TV interview he only mentioned two areas of health insurance reform he too would address, and in neither case did he mention retaining any element of Obamacare that addressed those two things, as is from Obamacare. In fact no where does he speak of trying to keep Obamacare and no where in the conversation were “many factes of Obamacare” discussed.
So, where is your evidence?
Are you naive enough to really believe Mittens will actually repeal Obamacare on his first day of office like he promised? If he wins the election, will the conservatives get on his a$$ if he does not fulfill his promise?
We already know tha guy is an a-hole. but he is still a better ahole than the one we have.
I didn’t believe he was this stupid, but the evidence is there.
“Everyone calm down. The source here is Newsmax. Newsmax is not reliable.”
I personally heard Romney say it on one of the Sunday talk shows. Having said that, I still want Romney to win because Obama is a communist, but Romney is foolishly acting like a moderate (cuz he is a moderate, sad to say).
Romney needs to look at history and note that moderates don’t win.
In an interview today, he said that he would be in favor of keeping kids on the policy until they are ___.
If the age is over 21, this is liberalism/RINOism at it’s best.
I will vote for a three legged one eyed jack russell terrier before I vote for Obama. Amen!
One that has been neutered and has heartworms,and the mange.
Rabid even if it goes to that.
I’ll vote for Obama then.
But 0bama is not joke, and he means to utterly destroy our country. He’s a buddy of Ayers, who said that 10% of Americans would have to die since they would not be amenable to re-education.
They are not kidding.
“Got it? Nowhere in this piece of trash does Romney state that he’ll keep parts of Obamacare.”
Guess what Chunga. SoCon is right. Mittens said it today on Meet the Press and I heard it with my own ears: “I want to keep parts of Obamacare”. So you’re the one posting horseshit. Denial is not a river in Egypt. YOU need to get a clue about the fact that we do not have a conservative on our side running for POTUS.
Yep. I keep telling the breathless fan girls that he's gonna break their hearts. Seems like our side just never learns.
The Massachusetts GOP was destroyed more than six decades ago, and an “empty shell” has been in its place, ever since.
Why not instead comment on the substance of Mitt's plan that actually posted on his website?
Romney said he wants to make sure in his replacement bill some of the issues addressed by the cause of "health care reform" are also addressed in the replacement bill...like 0.05% of the thousands of pages of Obamacare...that does not translate to "keeping Obamacare" as your propaganda states. The Obamacare bill has a few things that are politically popular that would be toxic to say he would not keep - like a drop of chocolate syrup in a large tank of raw sewage that Obama's spin machine has used to try to get people to want to keep the entire bill. Are you that naive to not know that has to be headed off at the pass going into the debate?
I think if people study up more on DBA 0bama they would vote for Rombag.
If we get 4 more years of the illegitimate freak, we may not have another election, or have any freedoms at all, and many of us may lose our lives.
It would have to pass Congress. No way that anything from 21 past (unless we’re talking about medically disabled persons who are legal dependents) would get most GOP votes in Congress
Are you in the camp that calls anyone who thinks Mitt is easier to work with than Obama, a fan girl?
which is why we need to elect conservative senators and congressmen
You can like parts of it all you want, but in the end you won't get to keep any of it.
Romney said it on a Sunday morning show today, think it was Face the Nation and I’ve read two different sources that reported it.
Thank you for addressing what I heard Romney say, also. We are left with Romney/Ryan.... to save our country, we have to get rid of obama. No time to get wobbly.
I'm not interested in talking to an idiot. Next!
This is impossible because so many Republicans and Freepers told me that the Mittster was a REFORMED Socialist.
Oh, but he has an “R” by his name and he isn't O, so we have to vote for him. lots of s/
It’s 4 years of Romney, or 4 more years of Obama. I don’t like Romney’s politics much, but he’s a decent human being, which puts him far above Obama.
Looks like you’ve made your choice already.
One other thing is clear: Bambi wants to destroy us and everything we believe and care for. That shouldn't surprise anyone either. He's shown that's exactly what he wants to do.
I'll take the former.
Why couldn’t he just say he would let the states decide. This is why the Senate is so important. Pre-existing disease requirement would eliminate individual insurance plans.
That being said, Romney is still better than Obama. Obama wants to destroy the Constitution create a dictatorship via executive orders. And if people can’t see that, they are as deluded as the Leftist Obama drones.
Post the source. He isn't quoted in this horseshit Newsmax article as having said it.
And that's what I'm addressing, genius.
Guess what Mountain Mary. You're misquoting Mitt.
Good analysis, Wuli. He does not say he wants to force insurance plans to cover preexisting conditions or children up to 26 or older.
People need to read the article.
It is concerning, though, that he says he will replace obamacare with his own plan....huh? I thiuk he needs to fully explain his intent on this before people go off the deep end. obamacare mandates what all insurance plans must do. Does Romney plan on doing the same? I doubt it...so he shouldn’t say he’s “replacing” it.
Well, that lingo is over the top if taken literally.
But so would things be like the Susan B. Anthony pledge, which Herman Cain originally declined to assent to because it would violate a purist view of the constitutional process (later, Cain realized that yes it is acceptable for a president to stump for certain items to get into bills, even though the constitution provides no avenue for the president to literally initiate a bill).
Why don't you go and find the damn transcript, read it for yourself, and find out what he really said.
Be more useful if you had used your 300-word excerpt to actually list the things Romney said he’d keep.
Although useful may not have been your intent.
From the transcript linked above...
....and it’s nothing new.
I think Boehner and Cantor said there were some things in Obamacare that were worthwhile.
I’m an idiot because I don’t believe the lies of Romeny the RINO? Are you freaking kidding me? If he wasn’t up against Obama, with shxt about to hit the fan, I would vote against Mittens for spite, to not have Mccain v2.0 again and to get rid of the RINOs once and for all and let the powers that be and the GOP-e that conservatives aren;t going to eat the crap the RINOs are trying to forcefeed us.
