Description

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney argued Tuesday that if the president's signature healthcare legislation was overturned Thursday by the Supreme Court, it would mean that President Obama's first term was a waste. "Instead of focusing on immigration — and of course the big issue, which was the economy, and getting the economy going — he instead focused on putting in place his healthcare reform called ObamaCare," Romney said at a campaign stop in Salem, Va. "As you know, the Supreme Court is going to be dealing with whether or not ObamaCare is constitutional. If it's not, if ObamaCare is not deemed constitutional, than the first three and a half years of this president's term will have been wasted on something that does not help the American people." Earlier in his speech, Romney touched on the court's split decision Monday to invalidate parts of Arizona's controversial immigration that provided police broad new powers to question individuals' immigration status. Romney again remained evasive on whether he personally supported the move Arizona took — which enables police to demand immigration documents of those they suspect could be in the country illegally during routine police work — but tried to frame the issue instead as the result of a failure by the Obama administration.
