Mitt Romney On Obamacare- ‘I’m Not Getting Rid Of All Of Health Care Reform’

MITT ROMNEY: Well, of course not. I say we’re going to replace Obamacare. And I’m replacing it with my own plan. And even in Massachusetts when I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people.

DAVID GREGORY: So you’d keep that part of the federal plan?

MITT ROMNEY: 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. 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. I also want individuals to be able to buy insurance, health insurance, on their own as opposed to only being able to get it on a tax advantage basis through their company.


Mitt Romney Re-Clarifies His Position On Obamacare On The Hugh Hewitt Show

Romney’s “replacement” is no different than what existed before the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) passed.   Romney’s plan allows people who are already covered by insurance and have pre-existing conditions to pay for it themselves.

Yes, they could continue their coverage. For a price. A hefty one, a price no one could possibly afford unless, of course, they were Mitt Romney with his bazillions to spend each month. Nothing to see here, move along.

Lifetime caps on coverage would be reinstated. Co-payments wouldn’t be limited.   In fact, this is:

If the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) is repealed:

  • Lifetime and annual coverage limits would be reinstated.
  • No federal subsidies for low-income insureds.
  • No Medicaid expansion.
  • Reinstatement of co-pays for preventive care
  • Young people under the age of 26 but over age 18 (if not a student) would lose their coverage on the day of repeal.
  • Senior citizens would pay more for prescription drugs.
  • Insurers would not be required to spend 85 cents of every premium dollar on benefits, nor would they have to refund excess premiums.
  • Young people under age 19 with pre-existing conditions would be dropped or forced into high risk pools which are not subsidized with federal funds.
  • Others with pre-existing conditions who are covered via the federally funded high risk pools would be dropped immediately.
  • Anyone with pre-existing conditions would not have the right to coverage and could not buy coverage if they are uninsured currently.
  • Getting sick could cause financial ruin.
  • $800 billion would be added back to the national debt to pay insurance companies a bonus for adding no value to Medicare.

Does Mitt Romney really know what he believes or what he wants America to believe?
