Romney's health care plan was great for Massachusetts and was touted as a
model for the nation... Now that model without the Romney name is evil, nasty,
cruel and unwanted.Romney says the first thing he will do is repeal
Obamacare. How is he going to do that?? Does he have the votes in Congress and
the Senate all lined up prior to election??? So that's a lie.Romney is a man of lies and distortions. He is the mystery candidate. He was
designated the etch a sketch candidate by his own party cohorts. He scares me.
No one really knows who or what he really is from day to day.Romney??? I don't think so.
Mitt has been talking about Obamacare for at least 3 years now - what is this
article talking about? The democrat's know the country HATES Obamacare so
they will 'attempt' to try to get Romney to talk about his health care
plan as Governor.. but it simply won't hold water any more .. not after
yesterdays ruling.People in this country are red hot ANGRY about OBamacare -
again - and they are now scared to death after Roberts called it a big GIANT tax
on the middle class. So - go ahead and try to divert attention democrats - to
your own demise. Mitt made it crystal clear yesterday that this law is DEAD on
day one of this presidency - anything not clear about this? So now we know where
Mitt stands - so now where do the democratic senators stand who are running for
re-election? Yes sir let us see how many of them are dancing around trying to
AVOID talking about OBamacare. Anything but OBamacare. Oh wait - they probably
don't want to talk about the economy either. Ouch!! No where to run - no
where to hide. America HATES OBamacare and they will punish anyone who supports
We'll still have people who can't afford a thousand dollars a month
for health insurance.What's the IRS going to do with these
people?What would motivate people to be doctors if there's no
private sector care, and the government reduces the pay, while increasing paper
Government health care is, or at least can be, a state issue... it's not a
federal issue. The US Constitution limits the powers of the federal government.
States have no such limitations, per the Constitution's 10th Amendment.Romney is right on.As for the tax vs. penalty issue... it
doesn't matter what it is called. The federal government can't force
you to do something simply by declaring that you own it some money if you
don't act. It's like saying... if you don't scratch you nose you
must fork over to the government $10. The government can't do that under
either the Commerce Clause or the taxing authority clause.
Mitt Romney is out of step with the Republican Party. The Republican leaders in
the House want to hold a vote next month to repeal the entire Affordable Care
Act. Sure, that's just a political stunt, but it contradicts what Romney
said he would do. Mitt Romney said he would keep several pieces of the
legislation. The only thing he wants to change is how it is the funding. He
wants to repeal the tax. I am very very excited to see what kind of
magic money Mitt Romney comes up with so that this healthcare plan is
"free" to the American public.
worf wonders "What would motivate people to be doctors if there's no
private sector care, and the government reduces the pay, while increasing paper
work?"Which Fox News anchor gave you that idea? The whole point
of the individual mandate -- as conceived by the conservative think tank
Heritage Foundation -- was to keep private insurance involved in the health care
system. Private insurance means private sector care.A recent
article predicted that 5 million jobs will be created in the health care
industry. What would motivate people to be doctors? Having a job that
won't be shipped overseas.
This is for Moderate most of those jobs that Obamacare will create is going to
those who are going to work for the IRS as agents to fine the people who do not
have insurance. Let me tell you this my husband and I have lost just about
everything that we worked hard for over these last three years of Obama. We are
in our late 50's and it is going to be hard for us to ever get back what we
once had. We have not had insurance for over three years. We pay everything that
we need our of pocket and do not go to the doctors. I still would not want Obama
care and you may ask me why it is because of how dishonest it has come about. I
can not trust it or anything in it. I trust Mitt Romney
Pay attention people, Romney says he will REPLACE Obama plans with his own plans
for socialized health care which are basically the same plan. If one law for
socialized health care is bad then shouldn't it stand to reason that all
laws for socialized heath care are wrong?What Romney says about
repealing the HCA is impossible now that the law is in place and the Congress
has already failed to act to repeal the Obama care HCA then there is no hope of
ever repealing socialized health care. It has always been Rooney's quoted
plan to force socialized health care on the American people is why he has shuned
the topic. For he too has taxes in mind to fund his socialization of America.
Romney hoax and double standard switchology.Utah fears the Obama
plan because it render's Utah state run socialized system illegal and the
state will have to surrender the taxes and Medicaid asset debt collections to
the IRS and HCA. People of the US have no idea of the corruption, anarchy, and
fraud going on in Health care in the United States. Its a web of webs that no
spider can escape from.
This is a great gift to the Romney campaign and he is already using it.Obama now must deal with the greatest unintended consequence of this
legislation; that it labels him as the king of taxation.Already he is
denying that it is a tax. Why? Because it is a HUGE, long-lasting tax
increase. And the path is clear for the GOP; repeal Obama's tax by
repealing the legislation.The 2010 midterms now have a chance of a repeat
performance. People will have a clear reason to vote for Republicans in
The 10th Amendment says "The powers not delegated to the United States by
the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States
respectively, or to the people."I take that to mean that States
can do things (like issue insurance mandates) that the Federal Government
can't. I would love nothing more than to ask a prominent liberal
politician, bureaucrat or judge what powers, if any, they belive are still
"reserved for the States respectively"
Obama says this is affordable insurance. Will someone please define
affordable?Moderate,What will those five million jobs
be? We were told that ninety five percent of working Americans will
see tax cuts, and the deficit would be cut in half. I don't see that
either. Therefore I can't trust the five million new jobs.Someone speaks with an untruthful tongue, and we shouldn't keep being
fooled with it.Ronald Reagan once said--Government control of
healthcare is opening the door to Communism.
This article leaves out a lot. And, it is also important to remember that the
people in Mass. wanted Romney Care. Mitt represented them, and helped create a
working model for what they wanted. Most of the Country does not want
Obamacare, it is a very different thing on the National Level. ONe thing
I'm curious about, does anyone know if illegals have to pay for this? Or
do they get free health care?
Mitt was governor of a large liberal state that was going to pass a socialized
medicine plan whether he wanted it or not. All he could do was to try to make
it as 'least objectionable' as possible which he did. This kind of
social welfare plan is, and should be, a state initiative, not a federal plan.
Obama and his socialists had no business cramming this monstrosity down the
collective American throat. Romney knows that and will work for repeal.
@worfFor those who choose to quote President Reagan, the following
quotes indicate there were times when President Reagan spoke with an
"...untruthful tongue...".President Reagan told fellow
Americans:"...we did not—repeat, did not—trade
weapons or anything else for hostages, nor will we." - Ronald
Reagan, denying the Iran-Contra Affair, November 1986.Later,
President Reagan told fellow Americans:"A few months ago, I told
the American people I did not trade arms for hostages. My heart and my best
intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and evidence tell me it
is not." - Ronald Reagan, admitting the Iran-Contra Affair,
March 1987.Republicans love to venerate a Republican who raised
taxes 11 times during his presidency.Republicans love to excoriate a
Democrat who raised taxes during his presidency.Such is the state,
of partisan politics, in America.
There You Go Again,Doesn't in anyway excuse the healthcare lie.
Mark my words--it won't be affordable, and will further subject us to our
I predict that if Romney keeps talking about repealing the health care act, then
the great American middle will soon migrate to vote Democrat in this election.
The Republicans and far right have been stupid in calling it "Obama
Care" because President Obama will proudly and rightly be taking credit for
it for years to come. Harry Reid will get and deserves a lot of the credit also
because it would not have gone through without his energetic support.Efforts to fix specific, understandable problems with the act will get
bi-partisan support, but a wholesale repeal effort by the right will alienate
the middle. First, the right has no alternative on the table. Second, there is
no guarantee an alternative would get the necessary support to pass. The only
way forward now is to make reasonable amendments.What are the
Republicans going to say? "Give up your only chance at American health care
equity and justice for our promise to pass another bill. Trust us."I don't think so!
"So much for Mitt Romney escaping health care."------------------This is hilarious!!As soon as I saw
this opening sentence that followed the equally loaded headline, I knew the
piece was written by some "news" agency like the Associated Press or
Reuters. So, I looked at the by-line and, sure enough, I was greeted with not
one but --two-- names of Associated Press reporters.How I wish it
were not so easy to determine the political affiliation of a
"journalist" simply by noting the slant of the story by the
style/phrases/general tone of the story. The sad fact is that far too many
so-called journalists are nothing more than advance troops for political
parties. And, judging from the clear leftward tilt of the vast majority, mostly
the Democrat party.Between the titles "journalist" and
"reporter", I greatly prefer the latter, particularly when they simply
do the job as described and --report-- the news.Just stick to the
tried and true "Who, what, where, when, and why (with the occasional
"how")" and leave the deeper analysis and opinion formation up to
the reader. That's what makes a good reporter and "journalist".
The "right to healthcare" will now be "the mandate of
healthcare". We've been scammed!
Romney's answer is very simple... compelled government health care is a
state issue... not a federal issue. Period. The federal government has no
Constitutional authority to compel citizens to purchase anything. States can
compel.Of course this argument will not set well with alotta people,
especially liberals, as they are complete dunces re the provisions of
Constitution limitations.Speaking of dunces... the Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court is the obvious Chief Dunce. He seems to not realize that the
Court has no, zero, nada, authority to write or rewrite law duly enacted by the
Congress. His replacement of the work 'penalty' with 'tax'
is unconstitutional. The Chief should either be impeached or resign. Perhaps
old age senility is setting in.
Worf hit it right on the head--national health care is another intentional,
premeditated step undertaken by progressives to lead this nation toward
communism. The Chief Wall Street economist just stated that 75% of the ACA will
by paid for by the middle class making less than $120,000/year. Quite a
different tune from what Obama campaigned on, claiming nobody making $250,000
and less would see a dime increase in their taxes. It's obvious that those
who still support Obama and his policies think that they will be the
beneficiaries of his policies without having to carry any of the burdens these
policies will place on the backs of the working class, at least those who are
fortunate enough to still have jobs. Again, you can't talk about any kind
of reform without putting people back to work. And the ACA is preventing that
from even happening in small businesses, which is still America's main
Republicans will regret calling the Affordable Care Act the OBAMACARE because it
is here to stay and will become a bitter reminder to them that they lost badly.
