Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said he wouldn’t do away with all health care reform, vowing to keep coverage for those with pre-existing conditions and allow children to have policies on their family’s plan “up to whatever age they might like.”
Romney has said repeatedly he would “repeal Obamacare” if elected, but his replacement plan would include at least two of the Affordable Care Act’s more popular provisions.
“I’m not getting rid of all of health care reform,” Romney said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “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.”
Pointing to his time as governor of Massachusetts, Romney said: “Even in Massachusetts when I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people.”
