Nevertheless, on Meet the Press this morning, Romney claimed that he would not eliminate some of the most popular aspects of the Affordable Care Act, such as protections for patients with pre-existing conditions and allowing young adults to stay on parents’ insurance plans:
“Of course there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I’m going to put in place,” he said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage.” … .
“I say we’re going to replace Obamacare. And I’m replacing it with my own plan,” Romney said. “And even in Massachusetts when I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people.”
