    Yes, I know Romney has said he would, and he has said a lot of conflicting things, but let us look at the reality. Repealing the mandate would mean that insurance companies who he regards as needy people would lose out on customers that would be forced onto their system by the law. In other words the insurance companies would lose lots of money from this. Who feels companies deserve lots of money, and the rich guys should not have to pay their share? On top of that we already know that when the mandate issue was decided in MA under Romney's leadership he happily signed it into law.

    We know Romney is a panderer whjo will say anything based on what he considers popular and who he is pandering at the moment to. Despite clearly claiming he was against mexican illegal immigrants he pretends he will make ways for mexicans to legally immigrate to this country when talking to hispanic groups. This is just one of his biggest areas where he blatantly panders and lies. Do you people really think Mitt is going to cut off billions of revenue from the insurance companies by allowing people to go without their products?

    Mitt actually repealing the mandate does not fit within his actions of doing whatever he can to make money for the rich, and the rich are the insurance companies.

    He said he would do so on day one.

    Wouldn't be a very good start not to do so, would it?


    Freaking idiot.

    Would he repeal something he favored. First he said the individual mandate should be in the federal plan and now he says he would repeal it on day one.

    Why would we question his word? His word has always been his bond. Right?

    Bottom line is that no one can say with any confidence what Mitt Romney might say or do in any given moment.

    He's not the first politician who would say anything to anybody if he thought he could get votes out of it. It just amazes me that we keep electing them.

    Lie much?

    He said the Federal government should incent people to purchase their own insurance, and then he gave examples of how they used incentives in Mass. which included the mandate.

    Each and every time he as been asked directly if he thought the Federal government should require a person to purchase insurance, he said NO.

    But you are a Leftist with a dog in the fight.

    He's got lots of time to change his position between now and November. In fact, he's got lots of time to change it repeatedly.

    The tea baggers promised "less spending!" "pro constitution!" then passed 858 billion in new spending by forcing through the Bush tax cuts to the rich extension as the first thing on the agenda.

    The GOP idiots don't care what their elected officials do, they just like all lies they tell them.

    He may have also said the things you say, but he ALSO said that the individual mandate SHOULD be included in the federal plan and applauded the administration for including it. Videos of the exchange are all over the internet.

    here's a very unequivocal endorsement:

    I don't hold out a whole lot of hope that he will.

    I would bet anyone any amount of money that Romney will not do it on day one. Or day two, or week one...or.....

    Reading is not easy for you, is it? Romney has said many conflicting things. He has also lied. He has tried to sue newspapers for telling the truth about his outsourcuing at bain and has told idiots like yourself that his sending jobs to china was not actually outsourcing, it was some other made up term.

    So why is it that despite the fact Romney initiated the mandate and felt it was a great thing for massechusets is he going to actually follow through with his claims? He knows from the primaries that in his next election you will have to vote for him because the republicans will never run someone against an incumbent and you will have no choice even if he benefits his corporate friends in the insurance industry by allowing the mandate to stand. This is the guy who made the mandate, and you think he is actually going to repeal it when he faces no consequences for not doing it?

    Who is the frigen idiot here?
