Mitt Romney, in an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press with David Gregory, said he would not repeal all aspects of Obamacare.
“There are a number of things that I like about health care reform that I’m going to put in place,” Romney said.
That’s surprising, considering the numerous statements he’s made on how he plans to repeal Obamacare if he is elected.
Two key provisions he points too are 1. The pre-existing condition clause and 2. The continuity coverage rules for young Americans.
Read the excerpt from the interview below, as reported by The Atlantic Wire.
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.”
The thing is Romney is not just saying he wouldn’t get RID of those provisions, but that “I’m not getting rid of all of health care reform” because there are “things I like about health care reform” that “I would put in place.”
I’m not one to get all CRAZY (you are flipping on what you said, blah blah) but hey, this is a little strange.
Romney has cited numerous times how troublesome Obamacare is and how it will hurt our economy and health care processes in America. But now, he’s saying there are “things [he] likes about health care reform.”
Well Mitt, why didn’t you just say that in the first place? People are not going to understand EXACTLY what you plan to do in office if you keep flopping on these issues and not saying EXACTLY what it is you mean by your proposed plans.
And we sure don’t want to find out you are as hypocritical as your running mate, Paul Ryan, who used funds from the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) and then tried to DENY that those funds were not granted by the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) and when caught in the lie, later ADMITTED or DENIED he had no idea his district was requesting these funds.
We wouldn’t want you to turn out like Mr. Ryan, now would we Mitt?
