Don’t worry, Mr. Romney, whatever happens tomorrow, you’ll wind up getting blamed somehow.
Mitt Romney jabbed at the White House on Wednesday, suggesting President Obama and his top aides are having a sleepless night ahead of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on the healthcare law.
“My guess is they’re not sleeping real well at the White House tonight — that’s the way it ought to be,” Romney said of the pending decision during a campaign speech in Virginia.
The Republican presidential candidate called the health care reform legislation “a bad policy that has to go,” and told supporters that if he is elected president, he’ll make sure to get rid of the law even if the Supreme Court upholds it as constitutional.
“This is a decision of whether or not Obamacare is constitutional, whether it will pass constitutional muster, and so we’re all waiting to see what the court will decide,” Romney said. “One thing we already know — it is still bad policy and has to go. And if I’m elected we’re going to repeal and replace it. If, on the other hand, the court strikes it down, well then they’ll be doing some of my work for me.”
Romney went on to rail against the law, arguing that it increased government spending and forced “government bureaucrats between us and our doctors.”
“He’s adding trillions of dollars to federal spending. We don’t need more debt, we don’t need more deficit, we can’t pass along these burdens to the next generation,” Romney said.
Meanwhile, tomorrow will apparently be a verdict on Obama’s so-called leadership, or lack thereof. Let’s hope it’s the beginning of the end of his disastrous presidency.
