The truth about repealing Obamacare

The truth about repealing Obamacare
Posted by Judson Phillips on January 24, 2012 at 10:22am

Holy Cow!

It is a good news, bad news scenario for liberal Mitt Romney. One of his top advisors comes out and says that Romney (nor any other Republican) will not repeal Obamacare!

If it were not the day of the State of the Union speech, this story would probably gain some traction.

From the Hill:

Mitt Romney adviser Norm Coleman, a former senator from Minnesota, predicted in a recent television interview that the GOP won't repeal the Democrats' healthcare reform law even if a Republican candidate defeats President Obama this November.
"You will not repeal the act in its entirety, but you will see major changes, particularly if there is a Republican president," Coleman told BioCentury This Week television on Sunday. "You can't whole cloth throw it out. But you can substantially change what's been done."
Coleman's remarks are remarkable because every Republican candidate - including Romney - has vowed to make repealing the law a priority. Coleman is also the chairman of the American Action Network, which has urged the courts to strike down the law's individual mandate and its Medicaid expansion.

Romney's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

No kidding they were not responding. They were busy telling Norm Coleman to shut the hell up!

The truth of what Norm Coleman said cannot be ignored. Mitt Romney is not going to repeal Obamacare. He will work to have some of the more egreigious parts of it repealed or amended but he will not repeal it.

This is the truth about the Republican establishment and why we must defeat them. The Republican establishment does not want to reduce government or change the way things are done. They simply want to control big government.

Norm Coleman has told us why we must defeat Romney and make certain a conservative is elected. Mitt Romney and the big government Republican establishment types will not change anything.
