Earl, Romney would dismantle much of the safety net (hence his endorsement of the "Path To Prosperity," which does precisely that. Romney defended Romneycare as a plan hammered out in a state that overwhelmingly supported it. Romney's support for indexing Minimum Wage to inflation (which I disagree with, by the way) would lower the speed at which Minimum Wage has increased. Romney's income tax is less progressive than the current rates. I personally want a flat tax, or better yet, the Fair Tax--but let's not equate Romney to Obama on taxes, 'kay? Romney's proposed lowering of the corporate tax rate would put it at a global average, which is dramatically lower than our current rate which is the world's highest.
Marie, he didn't attack it with the gusto I wanted, but he did promise the following: 1. He would repeal it. 2. He would not nationalize Romneycare, which was a plan hammered out with an 85% Dem Legislature in a Leftist state that supported the plan by enormous majorities. 3. There would be NO: --Unelected, 15-member rationing board. --Individual Mandate. --Forcing full-time workers into part-time. --Ridiculous sticker shock for young people. --Abandonment of the 10th Amendment. Again, he didn't fight hard enough--I grant you that. But he's not Obama; not by a long shot.
More Soros-paid troll bilge. Flagged as spam.
Hey Better, Mitt's proposed plan closes the borders, builds a fence, and deports people--that's in his plan. It's also in Rand Paul's plan--and also several others. Nice try, Commie.
I'm for a Rand Paul / Bobby Jindal ticket in 2016. I think that's the biggest winner by far. But I do like lots of potential candidates. Regarding Mitt, there would be a lot of advantages: 1. The recent film has sent his approval soaring. 2. Millions of Americans in the middle are regretting their votes for Obama over Romney--in fact, Romney is the candidate who can best say, "I told you so." 3. Romney has spectacular character (not unlike Paul and Jindal), with zero skeletons in his closet. 4. Evangelicals and Tea Partiers who foolishly refused to vote for Romney in 2012 would almost certainly support him in 2016 after another 4 years of all-out presidential attacks upon faith and freedom. 5. One thing that is angering people most about Obama is his willingness to ignore Congress (which was voted in by Americans, by the way) in forcing his agenda. To the chagrin of many on the Right, Mitt can honestly tout his track record of honoring voters by working across the aisle with those whom they've elected. "From Imperial Presidency to Public Servant" would be an extremely high-selling concept after Obama. 6. Romney still has the best track record of public and private success, having turned around countless businesses, a disastrous Olympics, and the budget for a hard-left state with an 85% Democrat Legislature. No one can come close to this blend of achievments. 7. Finally, Mitt's stances are increasingly popular: --Unleashing drilling and approving Keystone. --Approving the "Path To Prosperity" Plan that cuts over 5 Trillion from Obama's spending levels. --Forcing all government agencies to prove why they are "so important that we must borrow money from China to pay for them." --Auditing the Fed. --Greatly expanding School Choice. --No Amnesty for Illegals. --Lower corporate tax rates. --Curtailing the EPA. So why would I still prefer Rand Paul? Several reasons: He sells Conservatism better, his pacifist leanings would play well in a war-weary nation, he's a tougher fighter in debates, and he would expand the GOP tent into young and Libertarian voter groups. I think Rand will take the nomination--but Mitt wouldn't be so bad.
41 out of 41 Republican Senators voted against Obamacare. Many whom you call RINO’s have voted against illegal immigration, gun control, open borders, pro-choice advocacy, wealth redistribution, EPA overreach, and countless other issues on which we agree. We MUST unite to win.

Yet another non-answer. I DO attack guys like McCain when they needlessly criticize patriots like Ted Cruz (McCain’s comments during the “Defund Obamacare” push were horrible). I DO attack John Boehner for removing Tea Partiers from committee posts. I attack ALL division on our side, because ALL division on our side helps Obama. What on earth is wrong with that?
