One of These Men is Just Like the Other

This year the major goals of the Republican Party appear to be stopping the gays from marrying, killing more foreigners in war, and repealing Obamacare. To accomplish these glorious tasks the Republican National Convention (RNC) cheated to ensure Romney was their presidential nominee. Unfortunately for them their grand scheme has run into a snag, Romney doesn’t actually want to repeal Obamacare:

Romney, who faces Obama in the November 6 election, has vowed throughout the campaign to repeal and replace the Obama healthcare law. But asked about the Obama healthcare law on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program, Romney said, “Well, I’m not getting rid of all of healthcare reform.”

“Of course, there are a number of things that I like in healthcare reform that I’m going to put in place,” Romney added. “One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage. Two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their family up to whatever age they might like.”

Is anybody surprised that the Massachusetts governor who signed the blueprint for Obamacare wants to keep Obamacare? The only thing Romney really wants is to replace Obama’s name on the legislation with his own. This news should make the hardcore Democrats happy since they get what they want either way (except Obama’s name on the legislation, which really is all they want).

  1. As far as I can tell, he wants to keep all the state power over insurance companies and the base policy, just removing the tax. So it wouldn’t actually be “funded” by tax revenue – like that has ever stopped the US government from doing something.
