    Mitt's flip-flopping disorder seems to be contagious. His aide ought to get that looked at. I hope he has health insurance.

    :lol:

    Mitt Romney On Obamacare: 'I'm Not Getting Rid Of All Of Health Care Reform' (VIDEO) [UPDATED]

    UPDATE: 8:45 p.m. -- A Romney aide told the National Review that he does not support the Affordable Care Act's ban on discriminating against people with pre-existing conditions, despite suggesting on "Meet the Press" that he supported that part of the law.

    Instead, the aide added, there has been no change in the Republican nominee's position. "n a competitive environment, the marketplace will make available plans that include coverage for what there is demand for," the aide said. "He was not proposing a federal mandate to require insurance plans to offer those particular features."

    Original Story Below:

    WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney said on Sunday that if he were elected president he would keep portions of President Barack Obama's signature health care law, a seemingly abrupt turn on an early campaign promise.

    "Well, I'm not getting rid of all of health care reform," the former Massachusetts governor said in an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press." "Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care 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."

    Yes, I told you Romney is committed to health care, yes, I told you Romney would tell you so, and, yes, the aide is wrong.

    Yeah they are all over the place..

    Last week Ryan said that cannabis legalization should be a states rights issue, Rmoney said he would oppose it.

    These guys must think everyone is not paying attention to what they are saying.

    Does anyone really expect Romney to know what his position is supposed to be at this point?
