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

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 understand your position and until yesterday I intended to vote for Congress and State seats only. Obamatax cannot stand, people will die. You can call it God's will, but governments are not God's concern, they are the will of the people only. So when you have family members denied health care or lose their house to the IRS over medical bills, that is not something God did. I looked at Roberts BS, there are so many serious unintended or down stream consequences not even touched on by the idiots on Fox News. Eventually under this law, the IRS will be given the power to actually come after you to pay your Doctors bill, think about the ramifications of that alone. As odious as Mitt is this law is worse and Obama has shown a wiliness to bypass Congress by decree. Your choice now is Mitt or a dictator. Sucks yes, but this is far different than choosing leaders cut from the same clothe like McCain or Obama or Bush or Clinton, it is no longer about the politics it is about the rule of law.

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, 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.”

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.

The ONLY chance of reversing Roe v Wade is through Republican appointments. You can vote for Obama in the fall, but don't think you're doing God's work.

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.

Abortion is not even an issue in this campaign,which is telling. Stopping abortion will never happen by government action. It will only happen when women and men are raised to understand the consequences and given the moral compass to understand how evil abortion is. If you are waiting for a candidate for the Presidency to add the repeal of Roe v. Wade to their plank you will never vote again. Stop government funding of abortions, stop government free pre and post natal care and you can get a little control over the issue. If the government stops funding Planned Parenthood than the cost of an abortion will go up dramatically. Stop feeding the providers money and the costs will rise for abortions, Mitt will not do this, but a conservative Congress can and can force Mitt to sign the bill.

Thanks to Roberts, we'll all be on welfare before too long unless we maintain a perpetually conservative congress.

Romney is a stop gap measure (as he is our only option at the moment).

(When?/If?) he disapoints, fire him.

You should get a historical perspective, this is not the first time we have been through this. There has been hand wringing likes this at various times in our history. Our country has not ended, politicians have been reviled and accused of destroying this country for two centuries now. We are fighting policies that began with Wilson and need to be stopped now. It has been a hundred year war and the conservatives are the last bastion of limited government. Mitt is NOT a conservative, but Obama IS a dictator. While Glenn Beck can be tedious with his histrionics, he gives a very good historical perspective of the war. Every time someone says “oh it's Gods will” or “our country has already ended” they have surrendered to Soros and his ilk. We cannot totally turn back the clock, but we now need a constitutional amendment(s) to stop the court from taxing from the bench as the Chief Anus Roberts did, to change our tax laws and stop payroll taxes, to protect our religious institutions and update our immigration laws and put troops on our borders and finally term limit politicians forever. That will not all happen under Mitt, and it will be a long fight, but we have a chance with GOP governors, State AG’s, a DOJ that threatens to actually enforce the laws on the books, conservatives in Congress driving the agenda etc. Surrender to the Dictator and Chief Obama and none of it will ever happen.

God does not determine the course a country takes, who is elected or what they believe. God is concerned about the soul of man, the secular activities of man are not his concern. God gave man free will, how we use it determines how we live our life and what comes after life. God gave us the guide to a good life and a good society, we have the free will to follow it or not. You may believe that God intervenes in your personal life, but there is nothing in the Bible that says God intervenes in Governments directly. He did use Prophets at one time but only with his choosing people.

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?

Sounds like you've never reviewed Romney's record of appointments to the bench. I wouldn't feel so confident about what sort of people he'll nominate to the Supreme Court if I were you.

Jon Tester re-election now at extreme risk due to ObamaCare being a tax. What's he going to tell Montana voters? "I voted for the biggest tax increase in history?" What other senators now threatened by the ObamaCare tax increase?

BTW, only 51 Senate votes needed for repeal. Not 60.

Wrong. The real world works exactly the reverse of that.

Upon election, Romney effectively becomes the head of the Republican party, and will get whatever he wants from his 'team' in Congress.

So has it ever been.

The fact that you are bored is apparent to anyone reading your posts. Knowledge belongs to anyone who seeks it, wisdom is the application of all that knowledge you claim your family has. You talk about how knowledgeable your relative are and how much wisdom your 4th grader has, this makes you so wise because of what osmosis. 30 years fighting for this country, you are still a pup and you have given up. You post here because it is easier to fight with us than the real enemy. If you are afraid to get back on your horse than stay home and tend the fires, the rest of us will continue to fight for our secular and our religious life.

Great, then you know that the best way to keep a windsock pointing firmly in one direction is to have a strong wind blowing on it from precisely the same angle.

How do you expect to keep that sort of wind on Windsock Romney if you're not willing to contribute to the effort?

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.


That's a good point. I'm still not entirely comfortable with the willingness with which Romney jumped in with the individual mandate, but I'm more comfortable with the idea that we can get more mileage out of him than we'll ever get out of a second Obama term.

Romney is rolling in cash.

These conservative candidates for the US Senate, however, are not, and they could really use some help. The REAL battleground of 2012 will be the Senate. We need to take it back.

A good first step would be to follow on Twitter & support them:

@tedcruz, @richardmourdock, @DebFischer2012, @sarah_steelman, @JoshMandelOhio. @TeamHoekstra, @Rehberg2012, @RickBergND, @Neumann4WI & @georgeallenva .
