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.

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to defend the Constitution and protect citizens from unlimited government, but we will not rest until Obamacare is repealed in full.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 It must be repealed.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.
Obama, if re-elected will nominate 2 or 3 new Justices who will guarantee that millions more will be aborted. Can you live with that?
With 51 Senators, GOP can eliminate mandate
“Sadly none of that can happen unless we put Mitt in the WH. Hold your nose, pinch your cheeks, whatever it takes...”
That’s exactly what got us where we are. Not going to do it. I’m sure Nineveh had it’s own Mitt.
If that’s how God chooses to judge this country, then so be it. I know Romney’s record.
“Obama, if re-elected will nominate 2 or 3 new Justices who will guarantee that millions more will be aborted. Can you live with that?”
I’m well aware of Romney’s appointments as governor. Virtually no difference. Pretty sure Romney Care funded abortions, and I’m too tired to take on a Romney shill at the moment.
“OBummer as POTUS and Pubs with both Senate and House, OR Romney as POTUS and Pubs have only the House?”
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.
“I wont. Ill be under the shadow of His wings. I know who I serve.”
I, I, I, I, I, I, I.
Be sure not to beat yourself with your esteemed selfishness! For all your prayers, sometimes maybe God is telling YOU that it’s time YOU do the right thing and stop waiting for HIM to correct all the wrongs.
But Romney and other Republicans made clear they would not give up the fight to repeal what they call a government takeover of healthcare.
So Willie Mitty claims he would mess with “the law of the land” decided by the SC...
However he has promised for years he would not overturn Roe V Wade because that was as he termed it “the law of the land”
It seems Willie Mitty is a buffet guy...
What else will he pick and choose to correct about past bad policies and laws ???
Not at home so can’t post it . Hoping someone else will. Google judge Roberts epilepsy cognition . NY Times from either 07 or 09 I think but they wrote they were concerned about Roberts decision making due to cognition affected by epilepsy meds.
The majority of the law does not go into effect until 2014. There are ways to repeal it or kill it allowing it to die on the vine. We will need a new Constitutional Amendment because of what Roberts did yesterday, making it impossible for the court to write tax laws from the bench. None of this while happen under Obama and it will be too late in 2016.
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?
Yes,but then the reality of what will Romeny do? If he repeals ObamaRomney/Care on day one I would definitely feel much better. If he backs off or compromises..then I am going on Welfare.
I wont. Ill be under the shadow of His wings. I know who I serve.
I, I, I, I, I, I, I.
Be sure not to beat yourself with your esteemed selfishness! For all your prayers, sometimes maybe God is telling YOU that its time YOU do the right thing and stop waiting for HIM to correct all the wrongs.”
I’ve had long conversations with God on this. I’ve been interceding for this country for over 30 years. There’s no “I, I, I.... There is- I’ve lived all over the world. Do I serve God and what does He say? I’m a Mayflower descendant with a relative in every war we’ve fought.” We can be Nineveh or choose a white Obama.
At least a conservative Congress can hold a Rep president in check. Romney was NEVER my choice, but 4 more years of Obama will be the end of our country.
This is a giant wake up call to all Americans.
Well, the Heritage Foundation was for it before they were against it too. I’ll give them both a pass in the interest of beating the socialist.
Our country has already ended. I guess you didn’t get the memo.
