Minnesota GOP delegates blast Romney over recent Obamacare remarks

Published

on

Liberty Republicans in Minnesota on Monday slammed Mitt Romney for admitting that he likes some provisions of President Barack Obama’s signature health reform law.

Liberty Republicans comprised the majority of Minnesota’s delegation to the RNC and had supported libertarian-leaning candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX). The group said the Republican presidential nominee’s statements proved there was debate within the Republican Party regarding limited government.

“Romney’s statement that he intends to replace ObamaCare with his own plan validates the Liberty Republican position that the general election is simply a contest of ‘my big government is better than your big government,’” Marianne Stebbins, chair of Minnesota delegation to the RNC, said in a statement.

“The Liberty Republican position is a Republican president should be taking about how we move away from government plans to a free-market health care system, not cherry picking bits and pieces of one big government plan to create another big government plan.”

Romney told NBC’s David Gregory in an interview aired Sunday that he was “not getting rid of all of health care reform.” He said he planned to replace the law with his own version.

Romney has previously vowed to repeal Obamacare on his first day in office, even though the law highly resembles the health care reform he implemented as the governor of Massachusetts six years ago.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

British PM candidates clash over Brexit as Boris Johnson skips debate

Published

on

Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.

The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.

In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.
