Ari Fleischer and Roland Martin discuss what Mitt Romney's shift toward a moderate tone means for the presidential race.
So, Fleisher is saying Romney doesn't want a health care system "where you never sign up and then get coverage when you get sick" , Fleischer also said: Republicans don't want a mandate. So Romney wants a mandate and he doesn't want a mandate because Republicans don't want it????
Romney also wants to repeal Obamacare on day one because there is a mandate and he wants to implement his own healthcare plan, not similar to his Massachusetts health care plan that he now would repeal (I assume, because Obamacare was modeled after it) but a different one whereby switching from Obamacare to Romneycare alone would cost billions of dollars of administrative cost and those billions wouldn't even be paying for any care for Americans yet, it would just pay for the switch. Also, nobody knows what Romneycare looks like, it is not the same as his former plan, not like Obamacare....what is it about?? And how do we pay for the repeal and rebuilding a different healthcaresystem that we know nothing about??
