WASHINGTON - Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney expressed disappointment in the Supreme Court’s health care ruling Thursday and reiterated his promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act if elected.
“As you might imagine, I disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision,” Mitt Romney said during a statement on Capitol Hill. “What the Court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States.”
With the U.S. Capitol building serving as a backdrop, Romney argued that the ruling represents the high stakes posed by the upcoming election.
“This is now a time for the American people to make a choice. You can choose whether you want to have a larger and larger government,” Romney said. “Or whether instead you want to return to a time when the American people will have their own choice in health care.”
The former Massachusetts governor emphasized that lawmakers must work to replace the controversial legislation. While avoiding many specifics, Romney said that the new law should continue to prohibit denying coverage based on preconditions and also decrease “prohibitively expensive” insurance costs.
Romney completed his remarks without taking questions from the assembled press corps.
