Romney campaign reports $4.2M raised off healthcare ruling in 20hrs.
the hill ^

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 I’m 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.

I’m sorry but I won’t send the RINO a dime. At the same time I’m glad others are. I’m conflicted.

I’ve got better things to do with money.

I can only scratch my head and ask how I can believe him when he gave Massachusetts Romney Care. “So you were for it before you were against it...?” I’m a pilot. I know a windsock when I see one.

fact of the matter is Obama must be gotten rid of, Romney is not perfect by hell, he’s a million step up from the usurper in there at the moment.

Boils down to, who would you prefer, Romney or Obama, right now, Obama has to be gotten rid of, at least Romney can be worked with and held to account by a gop senate and gop house, Obama let loose with 4 more years of unchecked laws and no re-election to hold him back will be more painful than any of us can imagine.

It's telling that Mr. "I have a bracelet too" isn't trumpeting a figure.

On the other hand, I don't believe most of Obama's money is "raised" so much as "funneled"....one generally doesn't crow about that.

Yet unlike the many RDS sufferers on this site, I am increasingly comfortable with the idea of Romney stomping Obama into the dust.

Regardless of what anyone thinks, Obama must be gotten rid off, i do not want 4 more years of him writing executive orders like he was handing out sweets to kids because you know thats exactly what he will be doing. The “dream act EO” is an example of what he will do for the next four years, make no mistake about it.

I had HIGH HOPES that the SCOTUS was going to bring this thing down.

I still cannot believe what happened yesterday!

I sure as HECK do not believe Romney will do a damned thing about it.

Wouldn’t he need a super-majority in Congress to repeal it anyway? And even if he has that, he still won’t do a damned thing.

Maybeeeee, if anything, they’d revise and change a few things about it at the most.

People in Masschusetts wanted this garbage. Romney gave them exactly what they demanded.

Romney's position: Let the individual states determine their healthcare laws as they see fit, NOT the federal government.

I choose to take the Nineveh path and have a clear conscience. We have been given that choice. I’m not walking down the road of evil just because someone is slightly less. I can’t vote for the windsock... period. He’s nothing more than a prettied up, white Obama.

Obama lapdog’s email this morning.

Let’s win the damn election

It’s been a good day.

But this is a three-step process.

1. Pass historic health care reform. Check.

2. Get affirmation from the highest court in the country. Check.

Step three? Win the damn election.

Mitt Romney has been clear he’d repeal Obamacare on Day One. Just another reminder of how much is at stake in November.

Not a "happy thought" per se, but wouldn't you at least derive a bit of satisfaction from delivering political payback to the White Hut Occupier?

Better some small consolation than none at all.

And who knows? It's certainly within the realm of possibility that Romney and Republicans will deliver more than that.

I really dislike Mitt as our candidate and I am very conflicted. But as much as I dislike Mitt, I despise Obama and wish only the very worst for Roberts. So I donated $25. I really had to analyze what happened yesterday and after I was done imagining God visiting a multitude of plaques on Roberts, I came to the conclusion the only way to get revenge is to get rid of Obama, take the Senate and the House. Shove this law up there arses on their way out the door. Sadly none of that can happen unless we put Mitt in the WH. Hold your nose, pinch your cheeks, whatever it takes but Obama must go before 2014 or this law will be permanent. I also want to get conservatives in Congress, does anyone have a list of conservative candidates running against incumbent Dims? Which Super PAC has been the most effective so far, do we have a Tea Party Super PAC? If not we need one ASAP. I will donate more but I want to help get control across the board. As I see it the only way to keep Mitt from backsliding his first term is to have Congress force him to keep his promise.

http://www.repealitall.com
(Senate Conservatives Fund)

Repeal It All

The Supreme Court failed to defend the Constitution and protect citizens from unlimited government, but we will not rest until Obamacare is repealed in full.

Since the day this government takeover was rammed through Congress, the American people have demanded repeal, and today’s ruling doesn’t make Obamacare any less dangerous to our nation’s health.

Obamacare remains as destructive, unsustainable, and unconstitutional as it was the day it was passed. Now as then, our first step toward real health care reform and economic renewal remains Obamacare’s repeal, down to the last letter and punctuation mark.

Congress is incapable of “fixing” such an incredibly flawed bill. It must be repealed.

That is why the Senate Conservatives Fund has launched this national “Repeal It All” pledge to rally support for conservatives candidates who vow to completely repeal President Obama’s health care takeover.

We cannot just elect any Republicans to do this. We’ve seen what happens when we send Republicans to Washington who don’t truly believe in the principles of freedom. They back down, make excuses, and refuse to fight against the big-government agenda.

We must support true conservatives who can be trusted to repeal ObamaCare — all of it.

Interesting thought, my wife and I discussed that very thing. I am not quite ready to fully retire but I am eligible for a certain status with the VA. Once in that particular status, I cannot work a full time job, will receive max compensation and nothing I earn nor the compensation I receive will be taxable. I would be eligible to draw my SS early at a reduced monthly pay out, but my current annual income would actually go up! My wife and I as it stands today are not affected by this law until around 2016 or later. The military mentioned the healthcare exchanges when discussing reducing retiree health costs, so I suspect once Obamatax is fully implemented the DoD will come after us. My wife is a nurse, we discussed her going PRN, essential on call part time, which would reduce our taxable income well below the threshold in Obamatax. However, we would than rate all the crap I actually oppose.

That’s not the real choice. If Obama wins reelection he’ll most likely retake the house and keep the senate.

The party that wins the presidential election almost always gains seats in both houses of congress.
