On the morning of the Supreme Court vote to uphold the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare), GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney stood at a podium with a sign that read: “Repeal and Replace Obamacare.” (I can only imagine there was another sign printed up that said: “In Your Face, Obama” to be used had the Supreme Court ruled the other way.) So, undoubtedly, Romney is all about repealing Obamacare and replacing it with something that would be “better” law. Assuming he is elected and can successfully repeal this law what would he replace it with? Well, what is interesting, is that this is a candidate with plenty of experience developing and instituting healthcare policy. You only have to look to the state he governed and the bill he signed into law to see what a Romney healthcare act might  look like. Wow! Expanded coverage, a government mandate and it even limits the factors insurers can do, such as pre-existing conditions, to increase premiums. This Romney plan is genius! Of course, if he implemented such a plan, I bet he will just turn around and repeal it. Because, apparently, Mitt is against what he once was for.

  1. Fortunately if Romney wins he won’t be the one who writes the new healthcare bill (should Republicans be successful in repealing Obamacare). And, remember, Republicans have put forth numerous health care bills so we have an idea of what Republican law makers are thinking (nothing like Romneycare)

    And, while you might speculate that Romney would have had a sign that said “In your face Obama!,” had things gone the other way, we know for sure how classy the Democrats are by their response when the DNC tweeted “It’s constitutional. Bitches.” http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/2012/06/how-the-dnc-is-celebrating-127543.html
