Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney responded to Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling on the Obama Administration’s legislative crown jewel also known as Obamacare by saying “What the Court did no do on its last day in session, I will do on the first day in office if elected President of the United States. I will act to repeal Obamacare.” “What they did not do was say that Obamacare was good law; or that it is good policy. Obamacare was bad policy yesterday. It’s bad policy today. Obamacare was bad law yesterday. It’s bad law today.”

Rick Santorum’s going to have a field day with this. White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe on Meet the Press with David Gregory. “By the way, Mitt Romney is the Godfather of our health care plan. If he’s president. Remarkably, he’s running away from that past and he’s going to try to throw all of it away. We’re going to have a big fight about health care again. We know we have to do this for our economy, for our deficits, for the health and safety of the American People.”
Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum says front-runner Mitt Romney’s role in Massachusetts health care is a problem for the former Governor and the Party as we move to choose a candidate to oppose President Obama in 2012. His argument? “The idea that you have created a marketplace… is just like what President Obama is trying to put in place here. You are arguing for a plan, your defending a plan, that is not top-down. It is not a free market health care system… It was the basis for Obama Care. You do not draw a distinction for us that is going to be effective for us just because it was the state level and not the federal level.”
In an interview Megyn Kelly on the Fox News Network’s America Live, GOP hopeful Michele Bachmann continued her latest string of attacks on front-runners Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich by referring to the pair as the “Father and Grandfather of ObamaCare.” My question. Does that make Barack Obama the Godfather or the illegitimate pops? He’s attempted to keep his distance from it since it passed, so maybe he’s the deadbeat dad?
Newt Gingrich was once again Captain of Team Republican Wednesday night at the Reagan Library MSNBC/Politico Debate going head-to-head with the “media” and not his fellow candidates for the Republican nomination. When the out-of-his-league Politico moderator attempted to get Newt to weigh in on the health care wedge previously driven between Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and Texas Governor Rick Perry on the personal mandate/percentage of uninsured issue, Gingrich responded with this..
The all-but-declared Republican presidential contender, who has kept his head low for much of the year as he collected cash, raised $10.25 million in a single day Monday after bringing together his network of wealthy donors to dial for dollars in a city with no shortage of them. It’s a hefty one-day total that Romney’s team hopes will show his strength in the emerging GOP field.
“Do they think we’re stupid?” – Is that a rhetorical question? Someone’s getting fired. At a campaign event in Chicago Thursday night, the President was caught sharing a few unscripted thoughts regarding Republicans, their 2011 budget, Representative Ryan, and plans to de-fund ObamaCare. After speaking to reporters, the microphone was supposed to be disabled so the President could address his crowd of supporters. To the President’s dismay, the microphone was not disabled; and the reporter pool caught the comments. I think it’s safe to say that President Obama is anything but an admirer of Representative Paul Ryan.
Government payouts—including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance—make up more than a third of total wages and salaries of the U.S. population, a record figure that will only increase if action isn’t taken before the majority of Baby Boomers enter retirement.
So is WikiLeaks a testament to the importance of transparency in government and a tribute to investigative journalism; or is it nothing more than a distributor of lies and propaganda? You’re going to have to pick one fat man, because I can’t seem to keep up. Just days after you announced that you were going to help bail Wiki-co-founder Julian Assange out of jail, you release this heartwarming little diatribe detailing the inaccuracies of Wiki-content? Pardon me if I’m a little confused. I guess we should start from the beginning.
