Mitt Romney has found the answer to big spending: big fundraising.
If you hadn’t heard, earlier this morning the Supreme Court ruled that the Affordable Care Act can stand, a law that will kick into effect in 2014 and require Americans to carry health insurance. Though even Obama has acknowledged Romney’s Massachusetts plan for universal healthcare was the blueprint for Obamacare, Mitt has been insisting that Obamacare is unconstitutional and campaigning on a promise to overturn it. If there’s one thing Mitt Romney hates it’s Obamacare, because it calls for spending.
How much spending, exactly, isn’t clear. While some reports cite the government is set to spend over $1 trillion in the next 10 years subsidizing Medicare (Romney’s hitting that t-word hard) CNN reports “the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the law could reduce deficits modestly in the first 10 years and then much more significantly in the second decade.”
At any rate, Mitt does not like all this spending. What to do about it? Fundraise, naturally.
BuzzFeed reports Romney sent a letter to supporters asking for donations in the wake of today’s evil bill that spends to keep people healthy—and he’s already raised over $1 million dollars since 10am.
We can’t afford Obama’s “Big Government proposals and irresponsible spending,” says the man who out-fundraised Obama in May and will likely spend upwards of $1 billion trying to get elected president. Read the Romney letter here.
