Romney’s “Repeal-by-Waiver” Obamacare Peldge and W At Ease

Email Email Print

Back from Dallas and a Saturday night benefit for the Alliance Defense Fund, keynoted by former President Bush, my part in which was to introduce ADF’s extraordinary founder and CEO Alan Sears and to conduct a 30 minute interview with the 43rd president. It was an off-the-record conversation, but W kept to his pattern of not criticizing President Obama while also forcefully defending his policies in office.

My Washington Examiner column Monday reviews the crucial part of Mitt Romney’s speech on Obamacare from last Thursday which didn’t receive much attention from his conservative critics, namely how any new Republican president can effectively repeal Obamacare on day one of a new term, with or without GOP majorities in both houses.

“With so many likely and possible candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, it’s hard for any of them to stand out from the crowd,” the Examiner’s lead editorial notes Monday. “That puts a premium on having good ideas that make sense for the country and appeal strongly to GOP primary voters.”

“We agree with Hewitt that all of the GOP presidential nomination seekers should make the same promise,” concludes the editorial. This is an easy one for all the GOP would-be nominees, and hopefully they will all take the pledge to waive away Obamacare 19 months from now.
