Romney Admits He Will REPLACE Obama-care…

Replace?

We already knew that Mitt Romney would never stand up for capitalism, but on Jay Leno’s show on Tuesday night, Romney said that he would seek to repeal Obama-care and replace it.  We don’t need to replace it with a different big government plan like Romney-care, which is almost the same thing.  We need to get the government OUT of health care to the degree we can.  That’s going to be impossible with Mitt Romney who intends to extend the welfare state just the same.  It isn’t a question of repealing Obama-care only to replace it with another big-government program, but instead getting government out of all such programs.  Mitt Romney would tinker around the edges, only, as I’ve been reporting here for months, and this clip is effectively his confession.

Here’s the video, with the relevant portion at roughly half-way through:

The other problem with Romney’s claim is that he will issue waivers for Obamacare, but the truth is that no waivers are permissible under the statute, and the left will immediately take a Romney administration to court.  There will be no waivers.  This man is lying to the American people when he hangs all of this on a supposed waiver.  Sure, Obama is issuing waivers, but there’s nothing in the law that suggests this is permissible.
