Romney Has Conciliatory Remarks on Obama and Health Overhaul


“I’m not getting rid of all of health care reform,” Mr. Romney said, while emphasizing that he planned to replace the president’s plan with his own. “There are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I’m going to put in place. One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage.”

Senh: This is not exactly new NEWS, but he's reiterating it. Months ago, when the polls showed that Americans like a majority of Obamacare, except for the individual mandate, Romney said he would pretty much keep everything except for the mandate, which is necessary to pay for the healthcare overhaul. So here's the problem: if he's gonna keep everything except for the part that pays for it, how is he gonna pay for it?

I also wonder what Republicans in Congress, who has stated that they would get rid of ALL of Obamacare, thinks of this.
