Sean McGuire, host of “America’s Healthcare Challenge” on News Radio 1110 KFAB joined Gary Sadlemyer and the Good Morning Show crew to discuss claims that Governor Romney may be flip flopping on the issue of the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare. To catch you up to speed, Mitt Romney said during an interview on Meet the Press there were parts of the ACA that he plans to keep. This contrasts numerous repeal promises made during primary debates, which can be heard by clicking here, and therefore gives heartburn to much of his Republican base.
The former Governor is in a precarious spot on this issue, and McGuire talks about what Romney probably can and cannot get done depending on the election based on current public opinion. Another key problem is the looming fiscal cliff facing the country after the election which could impact any repeal effort by diverting political attention to the dire fiscal situation we face as a nation. Healthcare cost is the number one driver of the debt and must be addressed. What parts of the bill should survive regardless of who wins the presidency? Sean answers the previous question, and identifies three things in the law that will likely survive regardless of who wins on November 6th.
