Hispanic Republicans: You may as well support ObamaCare if you are going to support RomneyCare
Phoenix, AZ – The largest Hispanic Republican group in the nation, SOMOS REPUBLICANS, cannot support RomneyCare. Supporting RomneyCare is no different than supporting ObamaCare. Tea Party supporters mobilized strongly when ObamaCare was passed and voting for Mitt Romney would give them no leg to stand on in the general elections.
According to RedState:
“Romneycare is the antecedent to Obamacare. It dramatically distorted the free-market of private insurance; it dumped a few hundred thousand people onto federally funded Medicaid; it set up gov’t-run exchanges that disincentivize success and offer larger subsidies than those proposed in Obamacare; it placed unreasonable mandates on employers to fund their employee’s healthcare. The net result of Romneycare was the archetypical outcome of every statist policy; the price of a vital service was purposely distorted as a means of enticing more people to become dependent upon government.”
Secondly, Romney also gave his oath to protect a woman’s right to choose and his oath was said with conviction. True pro life supporters do not trust Romney based on his previous support towards Planned Parenthood.
Lastly, Romney has taken a protectionist and isolationist view against immigrants. He is considered one of the most anti-Latino GOP candidates since the Ronald Reagan years. It was because of Reagan that Latinos began to vote in support of the Republican Party. Mitt Romney has helped to destroy the progress that Reagan made within our Latino community. If Romney wins the Republican Primary elections, Hispanic Republicans will write in Ronald Reagan on the ballot.
