Romney health plan would cost more than Obamacare

  1. A recent report found that, should Mitt Romney earn the presidential election, American households might pay twice as much for medical care as they would under the Obama Administration's Affordable Care Act. Resource for this article: 1500 or more personal loan with monthly payments


    Taking a look at Romney’s medical car


    Mitt Romney has vowed, if elected, to immediately take apart the Obama-administration's Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, for being a "job killer."



    The president cannot just overturn laws, but Romney’s medical program might leave 41.9 million people without any coverage. On top of that, the typical family would end up paying more for health insurance since he might want to turn Medicaid into a block grant and implement health insurance tax deductions.



    The report, "ObamaCare versus RomneyCare versus RomneyCandidateCare," from the left-leaning consumer group Households USA, said the Romney program might put a "growing and unsustainable burden on America's households." It estimated that a medium- income family buying non-group health insurance would pay an average of $11,481 annually under the Romney plan. Under the Affordable Care Act, they might pay $5,985.



    Families USA Executive Director Ron Pollack wrote:


    Households USA also found that Romney's intends to cut federal funding to Medicaid would leave more kids and poor Americans without access to medical care.



    Medical care will be impacted a ton by the decision people make in November for president.



    The rising price of medical care would not be stemmed by the Romney medical care program, according to another report from Bloomberg Government.

    Most Americans supported the major provisions of the Affordable Care Act, in spite of what Henneberg may claim.

    The Massachusetts law was what the Affordable Care Act was based off of. This legislation was put into place by Romney, which he will tell voters:

    I thought Romney was trying to introduce this into one of the states though? He also claimed his version would be more beneficial and called Obama Care socialism, it just show how much of a hypocrite he is..

    Romney is a hypocrite. The same health system that lead to his existence he undermines.
