    Let’s hope that Romney keeps up this fruitless Healthcare fight until November.

    Give in all the rope he needs.....

    Repeal and replace, huh? You intend to get rid of it all together, right? Can't have all those Americans with healthcare, now can we? It might cut into the profits of your buddies in the 1%.

    I just get a kick out of how M. Willingham Romnington says "I will repeal Obamacare." Who does this guy think he is? A dictator? For all you Obama haters out there, the law had to pass Congress. Mittington thinks he's going to repeal the law like Yosemite Sam, with "both guns a blazin'!" This on top of the fact that the law is fashioned after his own in MA. He might as well say, "I am going to repeal a law I once championed." What a clown.

    What I don't like is Rwpublicans misrepresenting and lying about Canadian healthcare. Canadian doctors are being poached by Americans because they are better trained within the confines of our system and it is a total lie that Universal Healthcare is somehow socialist. The provinces and Canadian government collect the money, negotiate with doctors, unions and set policy but they do not every make the decisions that each doctor, who is self employed but treated like an employee, makes. The cost under your insurance are astronomical for testing and doctors that make a fortune at the expense of millions who could not afford care. That is rape. And republicans advocate it. All of the arguments put forth by by naysayers in 1964 were false and never came to fruition. Yeah, you need to wait in line because the doctor chooses the most acute cases go first and it is true that those that want to jump the queue can go to the USA and pay a fraction of the cost that the policy holder in the USA, but at least we get premium care if we wait for about $350 – $500 per year. Our doctors are trained better (you love to poach 'em) and paid well, and everybody gets served. That's right. Everybody. We have the greatest economy in the world so that cost argument is a lie. Now, get this: our healthcare system provides a healthy citizen. A healthy workforce is more productive. And that's good capitalism. Not Socialism. You need to provide certain services to your citizens in order to keep them smart, healthy and productive.

    While Mitt McCain and the unhinged GOBP are crying like babies, August comes quickly.

    Republicans need to REPEAL Romney's nomination and REPLACE him with someone who can win. Fox News poll says that Obama leads Romney by 5 points. Yes, Romney can't even win a Fox News poll against Obama. Republicans can spike the ball now.

    There is absolutely NOTHING the bishop can say about the same healthcare law he implemented in Massachusetts.
    Let's face it. They were waiting for the scotus to tear Obamacare apart and now they can't use it against the President.
    BTW – in DC they are looking for three men for a hate crime against a gay 16 year old child. Seems that the guys pinned him on the ground (sound familiar bishop?) but instead of cutting his hair they stabbed said child.
    The bishop needs to serve time for being a bully, dressing up as a state trooper and animal abuse. Just like issa should be in jail for stealing cars.

  12. The GOP needs to pack up and leave

    Unless Mitt is talking about the Patriot Act, repealing it and getting rid of it altogether, he should just pack up and leave.

    The days of the GOP tyranny and its determination to destroy this country are over. Americans took their country back in the 2008 election, and we're not letting a bunch of powerhungry, American-hating people like the GOP get it again.

    Mitt Romney has cleverly worked the words "Obama" and "repeal" into the same sentence. There is a subliminal suggestion to "repeal and replace Obama" in his words. That will change in a coupe of months to a more blunt demand, but the seed is being planted now.

    The next thing you know, Romney will be insisting that everyone start calling it Romneycare so he can ry and take credit for it after he already said he would repeal it on day one.

    Mitt, you sound and look too much like a really "bad man" used cars salesman.

    Obama/Biden 2012!!!

  16. Are you kidding me?

    The foundation for the GOP is obstruction and scorched earth economics instead of working for the people and bipartisanship.

    The republican congress has not worked on jobs as they had promised. They cheer when things are bad. People should remember this in November.

    My "taxes" already cover members of congress's healthcare. Why can't I have the same kind of coverage they receive at my expense?

  18. Wake up people

    Sit down and shut up Robmey, every time you open your mouth, you sound even simpler. Better yet, keep talking, people are finally seeing that you are talking loud but saying absolutely nothing.

    OBAMA 2012!
