Romney Wants to Keep Key Parts Obamacare

Romney Wants to Keep Key Parts Obamacare

There are 50 comments on the www.theatlanticwire.com story from Sep 10, 2012, titled Romney Wants to Keep Key Parts Obamacare. In it, www.theatlanticwire.com reports that:

Mitt Romney sat down for a big interview with David Gregory for NBC's Meet the Press. Rather than stick to our usual format, we're highlighting the key things he said on specific issues. Take it away, Mitt.

On Obamacare: "Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I'm going to put in place," he said. ''One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage." Romney also wants to make sure young adults can keep receiving coverage through their parents' plans. "I say we're going to replace Obamacare. And I'm replacing it with my own plan," he said. "And even in Massachusetts when I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people."

There was RomneyCare before ObamaCare.

Mitt is a man of the people. He implemented the first healthcare system for the people of his state.

Obama copied Romney! No orginal thought. They copied a brilliant man's plan for the people of his STATE, not the entire nation.

NO to ObamaCare
REPEAL ObamaCare
Repeal=New President and majority in the Senate-vote OUT democrat Senators!

We have the BEST healthcare in the world. World leaders come to America for their health problems.

ObamaCare centralizes healthcare and takes decision making OUT of the hands of doctors...that's the panel that Clinton was talking about....and where the RAIDED $716 BILLION in Medicare money went.

Did Obama REPLACE that $716 BILLION in Medicare...NO! he stoled it and then lies to say he didn't do anythign to ObamaCare.

Clinton was able to put that cigar in Monica's vagina, and he's putting another cigar up America!

Don't go for that smooth talk...he's a very troubled boy.

I'll bet the replacement bill isn't 20,000 pages long and needs to be enacted so you can find out what's in it. I am guessing it also does not have a massive list of organizations "exempt" from the bill who also just happen to be Obama supporters.
Face it folks, we have a Chicago extortion master in the White House. Do the country a favor and flush in November.

Are you a freeloader, or just one of the brain dead idiots easily fooled by smoke and mirror accounting?
Please enlighten us as to why ObamaCare is so great for everyone except for the numerous organizations that are exempt, that also just happen to support Obama...
Attention Folks:
Prepare for inane off topic insults that will fail to address the question, due to a stunning lack of integrity and abject hypocracy.

I am not sure what a lying neo conservative is cause that is one of those labels which has a definition which keeps changing over time then on top of that you add a adjectival restriction to it. But religious right, he is right about that they need to go fish. But the Tea Party movement people, I think they would be ok if they told those in their own group to go fish who were from the religious right too. I am all for the libertarian minded members of the Tea Party movement and think they are more of its base than the others.

Even though Obama used that label, teabagger, I think you mean it in its vulgar definition and you should choose different lauguage. I with some media person had put him on the spot and made him define it when the used it. Just flat out asked him if he was referring to people dunking a scootum in their mouth.

i am not aware of the 'vulgarity,' but I do believe the tea-movement has its roots in the pocket of the Koch brothers, uning dupes to champion for less taxes for the very wealthy.

The main conmponant of this 'tea-club' is those who would join the KKK if they could: mean, ingnorant, vicious racists.
That the "Libertarians" became sucked up in this snottish stew of stupidity is beyond my ken.

I think of libertarians as 'soft anarchists,' little boys, who never grew up; rather than the nasty foul slime I see in the tea-baggist group.

If you are a LIBERTARIAN, and you hang with teabagists; I say simply, tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you what you are.

Up set with the term teabagger? You shouldn't be, you hung that one on yourselves..Go to National Review Online. Jay Nordlinger, conservative, at National Review Online will explain it to you.

Hey LEFTY.

The libertarian vein in the elective is what created the Tea Party.

Your political analysis is akin to my knowledge of the mating habits of the Tze-Tze fly.

What do you really know , getting into the weeds, about the Tea Party ?

Which one of these three principles do libertarians disagree with.
* Fiscal responsibility , smaller gov't and balanced budget.
* Originalist in interpreting the constitution.
* Free Market economy.

Now explain precisely and specifically.

Mr_Bill.

There are two distinct type of libertarians.

Anarchist libertarians first noticed in the Fr. Rev. and represented by OWS in today's U.S. political scene.

Patriot libertarians first noticed at Lexington and Concord in 1775 and representive by the Tea Party in today's political scene.

The tea party is a movement not a political party and I guess they are different round there where you are from , I see over 20 different tea party groups around here and I am sure there are more, most of them are simply for fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets, some of them are religious bases organizations. It is clear from their founding principals and clear from their rhetoric. Which tea party are these Koch brothers in charge of so I can read their principals.

I think you have been watching too much HBO, that news show is a good show but you have to remember it is just tv and believe it or not it might not be true. Or you could be getting your ideas from liberally biased media sources.

Hey NAZI, wrong again.
The "tea-party" was funded and created by the Koch brothers. They also fanned the fires that brought the smoke that confused so many libertarians.

The tea-party is for less taxes for the wealthy.
That is inconsistant with tax cuts for the wealthy. You don't speak for Libertarians.

Almost everyone is for less government, until they find out their local taxes don't pay for the basic services the Feds and their state had provided.

Many Libertarians believe in an evolving Constitution, because that was the intent of the founding fathers.

Those who equate the US Constitution with the Ten Commandments do not understand the difference between God and man.

Under capitalism, a "free-market economy" is anarchy, followed by monopoly and supression. Regulated capitalism is better than anarchy; and I'm not sure that is in the plans of real Libertarians, either.

Libertarianism is just like Communism.
A pleasing sounding utopian state of affars, where eveyone behaves, and nobody is a greedy, cheating monster. But when that inevitably happens, both systems are unequipped to respond.

This is news? A 'gotcha' monent? A fip-flop?

No, no and no.

Romney has been saying this for months.

"Obama care was bad law yesterday, itís bad law today. Let me tell why I said that, Obama care raises taxes on the American people by approximately 500 billion dollars, Obamacare cuts medicare, cuts medicare by approximately 500 billion dollars and even with those cuts and tax increases, Obama care raises billions to our national debt and pushes obligation the oncoming generations. Obamacare also means for up to 20 million Americans they will lose the insurance they currently have, the insurance that they like and want to keep.

Obamacare is a job killer, businesses across the country have been asked what they think of Obama care, 3 quarters of those survived by the chamber of commerce said Obamacare makes it less likely for them to hire people. And perhaps most troubling of all, Obamacare puts you between the Federal government and your doctor. For all those reasons its important for us to repeal and replace Obamacare. What are some of the things we will keep in place? And must be in place for a reform, a real reform of the healthcare system. One we have to make sure people who want to keep their current insurance will be able to do so. Having 20 million people, up to that number of people, lose the insurance they want is simply unacceptable.

Number two, weíve got to make sure that those people who have preexisting conditions know that they will be able to be insured. And they will not lose their insurance. We also have to assure that we do our very best to help each state in their efforts to assure that every American has access to affordable health care. And something that Obamacare does not do that must be done in real reform is helping lower the cost of health care and health insurance. Itís becoming prohibitively expensive."

Hey LEFTY.

You keep using the big " L " for the word libetarian as I use the small "l" for ideology.....have you noticed ?

Just like LEFTY uses the big " D" for the Democratic Party based on the small " d " of the idea of democracy , do you understand the difference ?

As to the Koch Bros. they have less influence on Tea Party ideology than George Soros/Move.on does to your gaggle of LEFTIES.

I would explain it to you but as a LEFTY it's beyond your comprehension level.

I listed the 3 principles of the Tea Party and none of those are Koch bros. inventions but their financial support is used for education and logistics to promote Tea Party principles.
