Posted on 06/29/2012 4:30:10 AM PDT by sunmars
Mitt Romney's presidential campaign has raised $4.2 million since the Supreme Court ruled the healthcare reform legislation constitutional, his press secretary reported in a tweet on Friday morning.
Romney responded to the ruling by renewing his pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act known as "Obamacare."
He wrote in a fundraising email to supporters on Thursday: "Today, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. But regardless of what the Court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when Im President, the bad news of Obamacare will be over."
The Supreme Court's ruling was a clear win for President Obama, who counts the healthcare bill as a signature achievement of his first term. But Romney and other Republicans made clear they would not give up the fight to repeal what they call a government takeover of healthcare.
Romney's campaign had raised $2.5 million by 1:33 p.m. Thursday.

Just temper your expectations, and don't count your chickens before they hatch. Too many people are suddenly investing trust and hope in Romney that he's never come close to earning.
We’re in PA too. You need to update your credit card since it has expired. No one else will accept it either. We had no problem.
Then you’ll be just as responsible as the democrats for what happens in a second Obama term. And you’ll get none of the credit if the rest of us manage to avert that catastrophe. You’re either a slave or a free-rider, take your pick.
Alright. I'm game. Tell me when a dominant party in Congress has ever held their own president's 'feet to the fire.'
I’ve been on Facebook too much. I keep looking for a way to “like” Freepers’ posts. I wanted to “like” yours.
Absolutely, positively, one hundred percent correct, Chief.
With a majority of Americans willing to accept abortion under the usual circumstances (rape, incest, birth defects etc) it will never be ended just by electing a president.
It has to be ended by changing hearts on the retail level, one by one. Once that's done then the laws will change.
Many of the hardcore pro-lifers on FR live in fantasyland about electing someone who will do away with abortions with the stroke of a pen. They hate and reject the reality that you have described.
No, I’ll be standing by my conscience and God.
“Ive had long conversations with God on this. Ive been interceding for this country for over 30 years. “
Then maybe the answer is in front of your face because for 30 years your “interceding” doesn’t seem to have worked. You ought to pay attention and do the right thing all on your own. Maybe YOU need to GET IT DONE and stop selfishly waiting around for others to do it for you.
“...In Texas, Dewberry has refused to sign the “Repeal ObamaScare” pledge...my money’s on Cruz!!...”
BTW, The obamacare supporter is Dewhurst. It’s good to put your money on Cruz.
I know I’ve posted on this board before that I would NEVER, Ever vote for mittens. However, after yesterday, I am going to have to eat those words. Not only will I vote for him, I contributed substantially to his campaign as well as Ted Cruz’s campaign as well.
I work in in the Eagle Ford oil & gas trend in south Texas but I’m from Louisiana so I cannot vote for Ted, but I sure as heck can support him with my funds.
Many of us in the oil field business make very good money doing what we do but it’s hot, nasty work, very long hours and a long way from home. It’s really not much of a life if one dwells on it so I try not to think about it. A bunch of us have been talking about this for awhile now. IF, God forbid, odongo gets re-elected and/or this monstrous atrocity is not repealed, many of us that have been in this business for a long time are going to just “toss in the towel” and quit working. Some of these guys are already paying $50-$100K/year just in federal taxes alone. How many taxpayers like that can this oppressive govt. afford to lose? When this govt has those kinds of taxpayers going from the “pay” to the “take” side, how long can it exist? I know we’re small potatoes in the grand scheme of things, but still if thousands of others that can afford to do this and do it, it’s gonna hurt. We’re hoping the state of Texas just “opts out” of the whole frickin’ mess.
“Then live your convictions. Ill live mine.”
Your convictions to do what?
“I need to wise up.”
Indeed you do. But you need to WAKE UP first.
Ask the people who are enslaved under under socialism/communism/marxism in Korea, China, Cuba.....oh what they wouldn't give to have the FREEDOM to vote for liberty and freedom, to be able to rid themselves of the jackboot of socialism/communism/marxism on their necks. Imagine the fear and despair they feel daily. Imagine the fear and despair of those poor souls who lived under the oppression of Stalin in World War II, the fear of those people who lived under the domination of Hitler. What they would have given to be free, to have an opportunity to VOTE for their freedom.
Voting is but the first step in a series of many more toward returning this country to the Constitution, freedom and liberty, We do not have time to search for the perfect candidate. Romney IS NOT a socialist/marxist/communist. oboma IS A socialist/marxist/communist. oboma must be removed in November if you and I and this country are to have another chance at retaining what we have had. It will be our job as the boots on the ground to ride Romney's tail and make sure he follows through on the will of We The People. Romney wants to win, and we want to begin the first step to restoring this country. Romney knows We the People can make this win happen. God, sir, will look favorably on those who help themselves to do the right thing, to work with what they have, who will stand together in the fight the likes of which many brave men and women gave their lives for in wars past, so that we may be free.
Do the right thing...remember the cries and pleas for help from oppressed people in socialist/communist/marxist countries today, and the echo of cries and pleas from the silenced voices of oppressed people of years past. God helps those who help themselves. He does not look favorably on those who would turn their backs on those of us who now need the help of each and every person in this country, to WIN this war in November, to win back our Constitution, freedom, liberty.
“Failure to vote IS A VOTE FOR OBOMA, THE ENEMY.”
Anti- Christ or Anti-Christ lite. Sorry, no.
My Mother used to have a saying, “cutting off your nose to spite your face”. I think that might apply. As far as I know there are no awards for being righteous.
“God helps those who help themselves.”
Please site scripture and verse where that is in the bible. I like to keep informed.
Then go ahead and surrender, like the libs want you to do. You can’t get 100%, so you’ll take your balls and run home.
We’re in a war, and in war you take what’s victories you can’t get.
I don’t trust romney and want him primaried in 2016, but he is far better than and untouchable obama. remember what obama said to the russians. He’ll have more flexibility after the election. If you think obama is bad now, wait until he doesn’t have any reason to hold back.
Imagine how much worse off we’d be today had McCain and Sarah won?
We must thank our Lord that we did pour part to make sure they didn’t win!
Muslim Nations rise in the Middle East.
Fast and Furious.
These are minor issues easily corrected!
When Reagan rises and we carry him back to the White House all will be well again.
All they have done is chose the lesser of three evils.
Only Christ would make a good leader to the purists.
All others are fallen.
“Ive got better things to do with money.”
yeah like paying the Obama tax /sarc
“As far as I know there are no awards for being righteous.”
Well, I live my life before God 24/7. I Think, based on His word, things might be a bit different than you choose to think.
Then, please get out of the way...We The People will go on and win this war. And we will do it without you.
See my #113 post.
Yes, let's hope that TX and the USA do the right thing this November...it's do or die for our Republic. Romney or bust.
I urge ALL Texans to contact Gov. Perry and ask that TX NOT implement this HC joke, ala Gov. Scott Walker. Enough is enough!
Seriously? Nineveh, Nineveh, Nineveh.! Look at the voting record of Romney and Obama. The choice is anti-Christ or anti-Christ lite!
You can spout your “I’m a marter and all alone” God stuff all you want. The truth is that you’ve surrendered. Fortunately, there are millions of believers who still have the will to go into battle for this nation.
You aren’t alone in being tired of the lies and games. We all are, but the men at the battle of the bulge were tired, hungry, and cold. They fought on, without victory in sight. But they won.
Sorry you dont know Him like I do.
I know how you feel Pops88. I’ve been with you since the primary started.
That said, I know for sure what we are going to get with Obama, and at least with Mitt we have a chance to get someone decent on the court.
I’m well aware of his appointments as governor, but you and I both know his appointments to SCOTUS will be a whole new ball game.
I won’t shame anyone for their choice here, but I’m going to hold my nose and vote against Obama. God bless you my FRiend.
Sorry you dont know Him like I do.
No arrogance like religious arrogance...”
Pops does seem to be full of his view of himself as THE man of God and all alone. All he really is, is a quitter.
I can’t remember his name, but there was a prophet in the bible who ran and hide in a caves, believing he was the last man of God. God then told him he was wrong. There were thousands who hadn’t bent their knee to ba’al.
Sound like anyone we know? But I wouldn’t compared him to a biblical prophet.
Ok, I lol'd.
No, but you'd need cloture for a direct repeal. But even without that, you can defund it, defang it, and of course, Mittens has promised a general waiver as his first act as President.
Which is interesting because it presumes people could retain Bobocare. And some probably will.
Far different when something is done at the state level from the national.
“God helps those who help themselves.
Please site scripture and verse where that is in the bible. I like to keep informed.”
I’ve never seen it say that but it is implied.
Remember when God parced thousands of troops down to three hundred. He gave them victory with ease, but they still had to charge the enemy.
Let me just jump in with my overpriced 2 cents worth.
Look at the account of Joshua crossing the Jordan. I remember a sermon years ago about this and the main point was that Joshua and the priests had to physically “commit”, in faith, to the task of crossing swollen/flooded river before God acted.
There are other accounts like this but this just came off the top of my head.
Blessings and have a great day.
And it shows, maam.
Don't let your pride cause you to refrain.. Let your pride BOOT the jackazz OUT OF OFFICE.
If waivers were legal for Obama, they are legal for Romney.
Savage talked about this last nite
Funny you should mention Nineveh. If you read the 4th chapter of Jonah, he basically went into a tantrum because God didn’t act the way that Jonah thought he should act. God causes a shade plant to grow to protect Jonah, and then a worm comes and kills the plant. God teaches Jonah the lesson that God is sovereign, will act how he chooses to save whom he chooses.
I wonder if we can’t apply that lesson here. Mitt Romney is not the way I hoped that our country would be fixed. I’m not happy about it. When it was clear he would get the nomination, whale vomit wasn’t far from my mind. But I’m not going to go sit on the beach and pout and say I wont accept it because its not how I thought it would happen. Not because I dont have faith...but because I do. The Bible that you and I read is FULL of God using absolute pagans to achieve his purposes (Ba’alam, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus just to name a few). I certainly believe he can use Mitt Romney. (not that I’m equating Romney with a pagan, but just making the point that God can and has used FAR worse men).
Having faith in God doesn’t mean I have to sit on my hands, or wait for the perfect guy to appear. It means having faith that if I do my best with the choices I’m given, I can trust God is for me, not against me, and will work things for my good.
Perhaps you could explain your Nineveh reference for the people who don’t understand it...
It was Elijah.
Maybe even 50... why couldn’t a VP Ryan break the tie from reconciliation.
The only "goodness" we have comes from the grace God poured out for us in the blood of Christ--and He does not need us to "help" Him win the battle against Evil. IT IS FINISHED!
What remains for us is to use the wisdom God gives us to decide which person will best govern us in the kingdom of THIS world, and that rules out any hope of a "perfect" candidate.
So, please--vote!--and keep Obama from being elected by default
No arrogance like religious arrogance...
“Pops does seem to be full of his view of himself as THE man of God and all alone. All he really is, is a quitter.

I happen to be a woman. (POPs= parachutist over 40.) I have been actively interceding for our country since the 1980s, pretty much daily. God wants us to repent, but we don’t, so we get Romney or Obama, virtually the same thing. With refusing to repent, we’re getting judgement whether under Romney or Obama. I won’t vote for a slightly lighter shade of evil, period.
Then you’ve quite. You’ve given up on the belief that anything can turn around and accepted this horrible world you see. You’ve given up on believing God can turn things around and you’re just waiting to die. Remember that God said the race is to those who finish the race.
Well, I’ll go with my brothers and sisters on FR that still want to fight. This may be a fight we can’t win. But I would rather fight a hopeless battle, and even make mistakes in the fight, than surrender. You talk about repentance. Most of us do repent. We also stand against sin every day. I’ve lost count of the number of times I discuss the selfishness of abortion. But all we can do is the best we can do. And trust God with the rest. We trust God to take what effort we give and do something great. It may be that this nation is doomed to a slow death. The bible said that in the last days, it would be as in the days of Noah.
You aren’t the only person disappointed in Romney. I felt like throwing up. I often use the joke about three men walk into a bar. A business man, a liberal, and a conservative. the bar tender says, “Hello Mitt.”
If you have a better plan to serve this country, I’d love to hear it. I almost threw up my hands too and said, “Go ahead and reelect Obama.” But I won’t quit doing what I can. Right now, that means pinching my nose for Romney, and voting to primary him in 2016.
“Then youve quite.”
Yes, I am “quite.”
“If it helps, think of it this way.”
The things I’d like to post in response to that would probably get me permanently banded here. I’m not a Lemming and I’m not looking at the ceiling thinking “it’s for England.”
It’s a shame that “a RINO President Romney” will end up as a major disappointment to all non-leftists, everywhere, and for four years, if not up to eight years.
