As an Arizona Independent registered voter, I would rather have 4 more years of Obama Care than 8 years of Romney Care. Nobody knows what they are gonna get with Mitt Romney since he has reversed his position on just about every political issue imaginable. We know what we are going to get with President Obama, and I just cannot trust a politician like Romney. Mitt Romney refuses to be transparent with his tax returns yet wants Americans to trust him? How can Americans trust him when nobody knows what his real convictions are?
How can Romney explain wanting to increase our war and defense budget by $2.1 trillion, yet not want to take care of our elderly and senior citizens here in our Homeland? He would rather spend money bombing other countries while ignoring Homeland issues here relating to Americans? Doesn’t make sense to spend money abroad and increasing war budgets, and Americans are tired of war.
In fact, Mitt Romney’s own Republican cohort called him out on his own hypocrisy — see below:
The moment was, of course, the exchange between Rick Santorum and Romney when Santorum was aggressively challenging Romney about health care. Romney was going through his standard defense of his health-care plan, saying it was right for Massachusetts but not for other states. Santorum wasn’t buying it: “Think about what that means going up against Barack Obama … You are going to claim [about the Affordable Care Act], ‘Well, it doesn’t work and we should repeal.’ And he’s going to say, ‘Wait a minute, governor. You said it works well in Massachusetts.’ Folks—we can’t give this issue away in this election. It is about fundamental freedom … It’s going to be on your ballot as to whether there should be a government mandate here in Florida. According to Governor Romney, that’s OK.”
The New Yorker wrote about Mitt Romney’s reversals — indeed, Romney is making every attempt to be teflon on just about every issue ranging from abortion, immigration, health care, and jobs.
Mitt Romney can be a hard man to pin down. But there is one thing that he’s been clear about: if he becomes President, he will repeal Obamacare. That simple promise, more than any other that Romney has made, illuminates what is most at stake in this year’s election. The campaigns may spend most of their time talking about taxes and jobs. But health care is where the election’s outcome will have the most immediate and powerful impact on how Americans live.
Abolishing Obamacare would eliminate subsidies for people buying insurance and rescind regulations requiring insurance companies to guarantee coverage and benefits (for instance, to people with preëxisting conditions). Romney’s proposed alternative is to give individuals a tax break when they buy insurance and to push them toward high-deductible insurance plans, which he believes will make them more rigorous and price-conscious in choosing doctors and treatments. Romney also wants to reform Medicare by encouraging more competition among private insurers. The details are skimpy, but the core principle is that unleashing the power of the free market will bring down costs and raise quality.
Mitt Romney simply cannot be trusted and cannot identify with the average ordinary American.
I would rather have 4 more years of President Obama than to have 8 years of Mr. Multiple Choice Mitt Romney.
I perceive Romney as a crony capitalist who will hurt the middle class.
