Mitt Romney previews health-care response

With the Supreme Court set to render a decision Thursday on the health-care law, Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney previewed how he will respond and frame the issue.

Speaking to a crowd of about 1,500 people at the Carter Machinery Co. in Salem, Va., Romney said that instead of focussing on jobs and the economy, President Obama focused on pushing for the health-care law.

“As you know, the Supreme Court is gonna be dealing with whether or not Obamacare’s constitutional. If it’s not, if Obamacare is not deemed constitutional, then the first three and a half years of this president’s term will have been wasted on something that has not helped the American people,” Romney said as the crowd applauded. “If it is deemed to stand, then I’ll tell you one thing. Then, we’ll have to have a president, and I’m that one, that’s gonna get rid of Obamacare. We’re gonna stop it on day one.”
