    Romney: Overturning health care law 'right thing' | Political Headlines | Comcast

    Mitt Romney says he hopes the Supreme Court does "the right thing" and strikes down President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

    The presumptive Republican presidential nominee tells donors at a fundraising reception in Atlanta that the health care law hurts small businesses and costs too much.

    The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the law's constitutionality later this month.

    Romney said Monday that he hopes the justices, in his words, "do the right thing and turn this thing down."

    As Massachusetts governor, Romney signed into law a measure that forces state residents to purchase health insurance. The so-called individual mandate is at the heart of the Supreme Court case.

    The Romney campaign says it raised more than $3 million Monday night in Georgia

    And get rid of Obama....:clap2:

    If the Supreme Court doesn't strike it down and Romney gets elected, he'll look for every excuse to not do anything about it either.

    Overturning obamacare is the right thing to do. If the Court will not do it, it can be done legislatively. Everyone who does not want obamacare should vote for Romney.

    Obamacare is based on Romneycare.

    This has to be the biggest flip-flop of all.

    Romney outlines plan to make health-care system like ‘consumer market’ - The Washington Post

    Of course Romneycare has nothing to do with obamacare. The people of Massachusettes wanted state controlled health care. Romney as governor of that state gave them a workable plan. That is what he was supposed to do as governor. The people of the United States don't want universal health care and if they did, the people of Wyoming don't want the same thing as the people of New York.

    If men and women had the same coverage, either men would have coverage for costs of childbirth or women would not have those expenses as insurance paid. Parents covering "children" on their insurance is rather disingenuous isn't it? After all we are not talking about children but adults approaching middle age. Why stop at 26, why not 50, after all they are still children.

    "Offspring" is the word you are looking for.

    Middle aged offspring will do.

    I've been working since age 13 and on my own since 15, the idea that infancy can be extended to nearly 30 is really abhorrent. One can only imagine the helplessness of a person expecting childhood to last until nearly 30 when a parent dies and there is no foster family to take them in.

    Oh, good. And your experience is of course the universal experience, and this country was in the EXACT same place then as it is now.

    Right?

    The self centered narcissism, the lack of empathy, the loss of American moral values, all are a part of a sad world whose cause is hard to decipher. When did America lose her heart, her soul, and her sense. Or even why?
