    No, another belief of yours that is in error.


    Then he should have voted No before he voted Yes.
    Maybe a handful of legislative draftsmen "knew what was in the bill" but, given what a last-minute thrown-together mess the scheme is, I doubt even that.

    Yes. Even Max Baucus admitted that he had never read the bill.

    You're trying to argue with stereotypes again? It's really sad when epode do that.
    It's pretty clear for you to see, because you want to so badly.

    Romney was absolutely, unequivocally committed to Obamacare repeal. You see exactly what you want to see, and nothing more.

    Now if you want to go on the hypothesis of Romney being president and the GOP having control of the House and Senate that is another story. But Romney being president alone would not have changed ANYTHING in regards to Obamacare with everything else being like it is now.
    Had Romney been elected President there would very likely have been a GOP Senate. Furthermore, under a hostile Administration, how difficult do you think it would have been to sabotage O-care implementation?

    Romney's promise to repeal the scheme was absolute and unambiguous.

    True, but Congress largely works for insurance cos., not Americans, so they did what they always do--vote in their sponsors' favor.
    Why the hell do you think that Mrs. Pelosi had such a hard time finding 218 votes? The scheme was unpopular and the members of the Democratic super-majority knew it better than anybody. They were cutting deals and packing junk into the bill until the last moment. Nobody knew the whole picture.

    Romney had left himself no wiggle room.

    Boo is NEVER correct and your assertion that he would have just made tweaks to make the health care law more profitable is based on what ?

    That stupid Bane Narrative ? Jesus.

    Do you like being manipulated by a corrupt administration and ideology ?

    Romney wouldn't have kept ObamaCare because he wanted to Repair a seriously sick economy.
