Mitt Romney, the Human Flipper...

Liberty -vs- Tyranny

Mitt Romney was all about repealing the ACA (ObamaCare) as his first priority if elected. As I recall he said he would do so on his first day in office. Once again Mr. Mittens Romney is changing his tune just a bit. Today on NBC’s “Meet The Press" he said he would keep some key aspects of the ACA in place.

TPM - Mitt Romney said Sunday that he likes parts of ‘Obamacare’ and will keep key provisions involving pre-existing conditions and young people.

“I’m not getting rid of all of health care reform. Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I’m going to put in place,” he said on NBC’s “Meet The Press. “One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage. Two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their family up to whatever age they might like.”

The remarks appear to contradict Romney’s strong, unequivocal support for full repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which he has consistently held since the Republican primaries.

Politically, his comments risk drawing the ire of conservatives, who have been adamant that Republicans repeal the law in its entirety if elected. It’s a major gamble that could reflect Romney’s need to win over more independent voters, who support those provisions. {Read More}

One can just imagine Romney supporters now quietly asking themselves if indeed they can trust the candidate. One thing seems relatively safe to bet on, that there will undoubtedly be more flip flops from Mitt in the run up to November 6th.

For fiscal conservatives, independents, as well as libertarians there is a viable and proven alternative.
