Romney: To Get Rid of Obamacare, We Must Get Rid of Obama

By on 6.28.12 | 11:54AM

Responding to the Supreme Court's decision, Mitt Romney said, "Our mission is clear: if we want to get rid of Obamacare, we have get rid of President Obama." While he said he agreed with the dissenters on the constitutional question, no ruling can change the policy implications: "Obamacare was bad policy yesterday. It's bad policy today."

Romney concluded by urging everyone who wants to "repeal and replace" Obamacare to join his mission. Romney is an unlikely hero for the full repeal movement. But the Court has given him an opportunity to press this issue if he is willing and able to do it.

UPDATE: Obama made sure to mention Romney's past support for the individual mandate in his own response to the ruling.
