Mitt Romney: I Would Repeal ObamaCare

If you’re wondering whether or not Mitt Romney would repeal ObamaCare if he could, he answered your question in a speech last night at the Carroll County, NH Lincoln Day Dinner. He also admitted that RomneyCare has some flaws.

“Some things worked, some things didn’t, and some things I’d change,” he said of the Massachusetts plan he authored, without offering specifics.

In his first public appearance in the first-in-the-nation primary state since last October, the all-but-declared presidential candidate said that nothing the president has done during his first two years in office was “more misguided and egregious … than Obamacare.”

“Obamacare is bad law constitutionally, bad policy, and it is bad for America’s families,” Romney said. “The federal government isn’t the answer for running health care any more than it’s the answer for running Amtrak or the Post Office.”

“One thing I would never do is to usurp the constitutional power of states with a one-size-fits-all federal takeover,” he added.

In his remarks, Romney three times called for “Obamacare” to be rolled back, saying at one point, “I would repeal Obamacare, if I were ever in a position to do so.”

I don’t know. I’m still waiting to see who declares before getting behind anyone. I still like Herman Cain.

The full text of his speech can be found here. He didn’t just talk about health care, and he slammed Obama on jobs and his failed foreign policy.
