Romney Would Keep Some of Obama\'s Health Care Reform


In his appearance on “Meet the Press,” which aired Sunday, Mitt Romney suggested there were parts of President Obama's health care reform that he liked and would keep in place if elected president.

“I'm not getting rid of all of health care reform,” he said. “Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I'm going to put in place. 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. I also want individuals to be able to buy insurance, health insurance, on their own as opposed to only being able to get it on a tax-advantage basis through their company.”

Throughout the presidential campaign, Mr. Romney said he would seek to halt the law. In his comments, he said he would “replace Obamacare.”

“I say we're going to replace Obamacare,” he said. “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.”
