Many people wonder why Mitt Romney isn’t taken seriously by conservatives, when he claims to be one of us, but when one examines what Romney’s advisers are saying, it’s clear when listening to former Senator Norm Coleman, one of his campaign flacks, that there is actually no desire to repeal Obama-Care.  Think Progress, a truly leftist group, reporting on an interview with Coleman, and what the article demonstrates is not merely that there’s no real appetite for repealing Obama-care, but also that as I warned you, there’s no notion of taking the Senate, because everything said is in the context of a Romney presidency, and a static Congress.

You will not repeal the act in its entirety, but you will see major changes, particularly if there is a Republican president,” Coleman told BioCentury This Week television in interview that aired on Sunday. “You can’t whole-cloth throw it out. But you can substantially change what’s been done.” […]

“If there’s a Republican president, what you’ll see is states getting waivers … granted and then starting again, making sure that we lower costs, which this act hasn’t done, while we provide better access,” Coleman said.

Still, he said, the law “may collapse” on its own if the Supreme Court strikes down the requirement that everyone have insurance. “I don’t think the act works financially … if you don’t have the individual mandate, because your costs are going to go so far through the roof.”

Once you understand the implications, you will realize the geniuses in the Romney camp don’t really believe we’ll be able to repeal Obama-Care(and in fact don’t want to,) so instead, what they’ll settle for is mucking around in it but stiffing us with a system that will inevitably lead to a single payer system.  This flies in the face of Romney’s promises to repeal Obamacare, and there’s no reason on Earth to think he will follow through. That’s seen by his insiders as a campaign promise he has no intention of upholding.
