Romney Suddenly Likes Parts Of Health Care Reform

Mitt Romney has a long history of flip flops, not surprising for someone who has no core principles and will say anything to get elected. The "Etch-A Sketch" candidate's latest reversal is on the Affordable Care Act (ACA). His "Five Point Plan" states, "We must repeal and replace Obamacare"–a point that he's repeatedly emphasized in speeches. Romney has suddenly had a change of heart; today he told "Meet The Press" that he likes parts of the ACA:

“I’m not getting rid of all of health care reform. Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I’m going to put in place,” he said on NBC’s “Meet The Press. “One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage. Two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their family up to whatever age they might like.”

The remarks could have huge implications as they signal a marked shift from Romney’s strong, unequivocal support for full repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which he has consistently held since the Republican primaries.
