Romney: Supreme Court Ruling on Health Law Wrong

YouTube
Thursday, June 28, 2012

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2dJSJotAvw

Republican Mitt Romney is promising that he will repeal the federal health care law the Supreme Court just upheld. He called the decision incorrect and said Thursday that it is a ‘bad law.’

---------------------------

To all you mainline Republicans out there, if you believe what Romney said yesterday concerning his views about Obamacare, then you're just as embarrassingly gullible and willfully stupid as Obama cultists were four years ago when they were being "pimped" by their "pimp daddy":

Video: 2006 Mitt Romney speaking about the Massachusetts health care insurance reform law he signed
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4iTtNGjFY4

On April 12, 2006, then Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney signed the Massachusetts health care insurance reform law and established the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority. The legislation mandated that nearly all Massachusetts residents buy or obtain health insurance coverage.

Mitt Romney, Valiant Defender of Individual Mandates

http://healthcareforamericanow.org/2012/06/06/romney-valiant-defender-of-mandates/


[...]

Romney repeatedly vows to repeal Obamacare. Yet the presumptive Republican candidate for president was clear about how and why an individual mandate in the health insurance market is important.

The emails reveal that Romney was directly engaged in the negotiations that shaped the Massachusetts health care law. He was consumed with the back-and-forth over legislative language and the horse-trading that allowed the bill to become law, the messages show.

Romney was proud of his handiwork. In the Jan. 26 GOP Presidential Debate, Romney said:

    “Let me tell you this about our system in Massachusetts: 92 percent of our people were insured before we put our plan in place. Nothing’s changed for them. The system is the same. They have private market-based insurance. We had 8 percent of our people that weren’t insured. And so what we did is we said let’s find a way to get them insurance, again, market-based private insurance. We didn’t come up with some new government insurance plan.”

Mitt Romney can protest all he wants about how Obamacare and Romneycare are different, but the truth is they are extremely similar, and as governor of Massachusetts he put in place the same policies that his extremist right-wing Republican friends have persuaded him to oppose now that they are part of the Affordable Care Act.

Romney on Obamacare: ‘It’s a Tax and It’s Constitutional;’ Romneycare Was a ‘Penalty,’ And It’s Constitutional, Too

Saturday, July 7, 2012

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told CBS’s “This Morning” on Thursday that the Supreme Court has ruled that Obamacare is a tax, “so it’s a tax,” while the health care mandate he signed into law as governor of Massachusetts is a “penalty.”

Romney said both Obamacare and Romneycare should now be considered constitutional.

“The Supreme Court has the final word, and their final word is that Obamacare is a tax. So it’s a tax. They decided it was constitutional, so it’s a tax and it’s constitutional. That’s the final word. That’s what it is,” Romney said.

“Now, I agree with the dissent–I would have taken a different course, but the dissent wasn’t in the majority. The majority has ruled, and their rule is final,” he said.

“But does that mean that the mandate in the state of Massachusetts under your health care law also is a tax–and that you raised taxes as governor?” CBS News chief political correspondent Jan Crawford asked.
