imageFormer Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) said that on day one he would issue an executive order that would pave the way for Obamacare waivers for every state.

The executive order would direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health-care solutions that work best for them.

As I have stated time and again, a one-size-fits-all national plan that raises taxes is simply not the answer. Under our federalist system, the states are “laboratories of democracy.” They should be free to experiment.

This coming from the guy who implemented RomneyCare in his home state seems strange.  Regardless I’m not a fan of executive orders anyway.  It seems to me that he’d be usurping Congressional authority.  Again, I’d like to see a quick remedy to this, but I don’t trust the source of the idea and I question its constitutionality.

  1. Obama is waiving the mandates to his buddies and others unable to withstand its regulations. How is Romney’s proposal any less constitutional? Romney just expands Obama’s idea and gets everyone out of it. Well played Governor Romney…

  3. Shane Vander Hart. You have holes in your argument. “This coming from the guy who implemented “RomneyCare”….” Right, he did it in the state of Massachusetts, because that’s what his constituents wanted! He wasn’t advocating for a federal law to force people to buy it. Also, Romneycare was not a mandate. It was a gap-filler. Do your homework. The fact that you’re not a fan of the executive order doesn’t mean the process isn’t available to a president. It’s the executive order that is keeping all of Obama’s so-called papers and indeed, identifying documents from being exposed to the American public.
