There have been all kinds of opinions on Mitt Romney’s handling of Monday’s Supreme Court ruling over SB 1070, but I’m having a hard time imagining any of his supporters are going to take too much umbrage with this one. It’s really just that simple: We have got to get rid of President Obama.
Romney added: “Obamacare was bad policy yesterday. It’s bad policy today. Obamacare was bad law yesterday. It’s bad law today.”
This presidential election is “a choice,” Romney said. “You can choose whether you want to have a larger and larger government, more and more intrusive in your life, separating you and your doctor, whether you’re comfortable with more deficits, higher debt that we will pass onto the coming generations. [Or] whether you’re willing to have the government put in place a plan that potentially causes you to lose the insurance that you like or whether instead you want to return to a time when the American people will have their own choice in health care, where consumers will be able to make share choices as to what kind of health insurance they want.”
“This is the time of choice for the American people,” Romney said.
Romney concluded: “Help us. Help us defeat Obamacare. Help us defeat the liberal agenda that makes government too big, too intrusive and is killing jobs across this great country.”
Yep, that pretty much sums it up. As Ed noted earlier, donations to Mitt Romney’s campaign exploded in the hour following the Supreme Court’s announcement on the individual mandate — and seeing as how the majority of Americans have made it clear that they are most definitively not okay with the idea of the individual mandate, regardless of whether it’s a tax or falls under the commerce clause or what have you, I think this is only going to continue to help his campaign.
