Romney mail piece takes aim at 'Obamacare'

Washington (CNN) – A new mailer from the Romney campaign portrays “Obamacare” in a particularly harsh light, claiming that President Barack Obama’s health care law would send jobs overseas and force millions off Americans off their existing coverage.

The mail piece, which landed in Virginia mailboxes late last week, says Republican nominee Mitt Romney would “take immediate steps to repeal and replace Obamacare” on the first day of his presidency.

“New Obamacare taxes, more Virginia jobs lost,” reads the mail piece, which was provided to CNN by a voter in the Commonwealth. “To repeal Obamacare, America must replace President Obama.”

    Mitt Romney needs to stop flip flopping and thinks that voters are dumb. During the primary and the republican convention, he claimed that he will repeal obamacare on day one if he is elected.
    After the convention, during a tv interview, he claimed that he will not repeal all the provisions of obamacare.
    Even after he said he will not repeal the law, his vice president nominee and his campaign still talk about repealing the law.
    Either Romney don't know what he is talking about or his vice president and campaign Staffs are disconnected with him.
    Too many flip flops Romney qualities therefore he is hard to be trusted.

    When is Romney-Ryan going to send out a mailer blaming Obama for the U.S. losing the Ryder Cup? They seem to blame everything bad on Obama and take no responsibility themselves.

    Yes, let the insurance companies make big profits and deny cover to sick people. And, let the uninsured go back to the ER’s as their only option! That sure will serve the people and lower costs!
    Oh, please, go out and vote! Get this GOP party of “NO” out of Washington so we can move forward and thrive!

    Pants-on-fire Romney gives no specifics how he would replace nor a way to pay for it.

    Mitt would repeal healthcare for women, pre-existing conditions for children, and reopen the doughnut hole in seniors' costs.

    No thanks.

    Oh Willard, you are such a liar. You're the one responsible for outsourcing jobs, not President Obama. I smell desperation and as this month goes on I'm sure the stench will become deplorable.

    Anybody that votes for this unstable, pathological liar has to be insane.

    OBAMA 2012!

    Soooooo – Mitt spreading fear among senior citizens. What's new. ALL the republicans do it, all the time.

    Too late Mitt -- we know you're a pathological liar. We won't have to pay any more for Obamacare when we get switched over, than what we pay for medicare now, because Obamacare bases premiums on income left over after housing, food, meds, transportation, etc.

    Mitt will tell any lie, scare anyone, to get a vote. DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD MITT SAYS.

    If I lived in Va I would be insulted that the gop thinks im stupid enough to believe that garbage. Be careful Romeny supporters all these lies to get elected and persuade indep voters. Maybe his whole campaign is just one big lie. Cant get a straight answer out of either one of them on Romney's plan. Woner why?
