Mitt Romney says that if he’s elected president, he will keep parts of Obamacare.
“Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I’m going to put in place. 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.”
But Romney continued to attack President Obama on the economic front, seizing on last week’s anemic job-creation numbers.
Host David Gregory asked him about a Democratic bumper sticker with the zinger: “Bin Laden is dead, G.M. is alive.”
“Well, we got bumper stickers letting people know who we are,” Romney said. “But it’s basically, ‘You want more jobs? You want higher income? Then vote for Romney and Ryan.’”
“Iran, however, becoming nuclear is a whole different development and a game-changing, threatening development,” he said.
“President Obama had a policy of engagement with [Iranian president] Ahmadinejad. That policy has not worked and we’re closer to a nuclear weapon as a result of that.”
But he didn’t say exactly how far he would go to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons.
“I think we make it very clear that a nuclear Iran is unacceptable to the United States of America, to civilized nations throughout the world,” he said.
“And that we will maintain every option that is available to us to keep that from happening.”
