For what it’s worth, Mitt Romney jumped into the fray on Friday offering his two cents on the Republicans proposed government shutdown coming in a few days. Said Romney, who developed a flip flopping character during the 2012 presidential election cycle…
“We’re more effective tactically not to use a shutdown of some kind to pursue the … anti-Obamacare objective. I don’t think that will be as effective.”
Romney also admitted that the proposed idea to delay the full implementation of ObamaCare by a year is “a better way” to get rid of the healthcare law.
“I think there’s a better way of getting rid of Obamacare – my own view – and that is, one, delaying it by at least a year. That was Senator (Joe) Manchin’s idea, the Democrats’ idea,” Romney said.
Manchin said Thursday that he would support delaying the individual mandate by one year. The Senate passed a continuing resolution Friday that was free of any defunding legislation, sending the bill back to the House where its fate is uncertain. The fiscal year deadline is set for Monday at midnight, at which time the federal government is due to run out of money.
Mitt Romney ran his presidential campaign on a platform of ending ObamaCare. The American people disagreed, offering his a tremendous loss for his efforts. Republicans have voted over 40 times to repeal ObamaCare, failing each time. And now, they are setting the stage to shut down the government on Monday if ObamaCare is funded.
Why are these people in office? They’re clearly not doing what a majority of the American people are demanding!0
