“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.”

...Asked on “Meet The Press” if he wants to repeal those two popular provisions of the law, Romney said, “Well, of course not. I say we’re going to replace Obamacare. And I’m replacing it with my own plan. And even in Massachusetts when I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people.”

(Doing my best Louis Black Impression) Y'know what else you had in Massachusetts, Governor?


In fact, let me just let the actual Louis Black respond to this in his own words.

The amazin thing is that there are people who've never left this country, who talk about the fact that "we're the greatest country on earth".  

How Fucking Dumb is that?

Because you don't know, you don't know.  There are countries that may be giving shit away every day.

Canada is one of those countries.  Y'know what they give away?


So my question to Willard is simple: In the wake of the fact that an insurance system that is open to all, even those with pre-existing conditions, and also allows those who are far healthier to completely opt-out of care which would shrink the pool of people paying premiums and drive costs through the roof like an exploding Super-Volcano...

How Fucking Dumb does he think Americans are?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
