Yep. You read that right. Norm Coleman, an important advisor to Mitt Romney, said the following on a talking heads gasfest a couple of days ago:
You will not repeal the act in its entirety, but you will see major changes, particularly if there is a Republican president … You can’t whole-cloth throw it out. But you can substantially change what’s been done.
This not only conflicts with what Romney has been saying in the debates, it suggests that he and his advisors are out of touch with the GOP base.
Repeal is a major issue with GOP voters. Yet Romney provided the blueprint for ObamaCare and apparently isn’t truly committed to repeal.
Just another brick in the wall. If the GOP is dumb enough to give the presidential nomination to Mitt Romney, Obama will beat him like a drum.
