Romney might have a difficult time ignoring a Republican-dominated Congress in 2013. If this scenario pans out, there will be a mandate that Obamacare be repealed and since Romney’s not black he’ll be held accountable for inaction. The repeal would have to take place if the Repubs sweep Congress.. No two ways about it. It’s the ‘replace’ part that’ll get ugly because we’ll end up with government intrusion of health care no matter what, to appease the news media. MUST answer to the news media, right?
You've got it exactly backwards. The Republican-dominated Congress is going to have a hard time saying no to Romney, who will be the leader of their party.
They're going to give him what he wants, and the Dems will go along with it, because Romney will continue to forward their agenda. Just like he did in Massachusetts.
Yup. But remember, the number of uninsured that was always originally talked about was something like 20 million. (I dont know the number exactly - it may be much less). ObamaCare supposedly covers 300 million which is OVERKILL. Millions of these people already had insurance through their employer. The man's not only insuring illegal aliens but encouraging them to continue coming in at the same time. The most liberal version of path to citizenship from our side 5 years ago was for those here longer than 20 or 25 years with no criminal record. Obama's "path to citizenship" has worked itself all the way back into the streets of present day Mexico.
At one time there were actually multiple republican pundits suggesting a simple expansion of Medicaid would have covered the small number of uninsured. I don't know where I stand on that but it goes to show you how Obama cut off the limbs of America to fix a cold sore on the lip.
Obama needs to go in November. If he does not, this nation is doomed like we've never seen doom before.
