Probably continuing to insist that if he has elected president Obama's signature health care law will be history.
But do we trust the guy who did his own version of mandated health care in Massachusetts to stop obamacare former New York lieutenant governor and health -- That's a record joining us now so Betsy.
Do you believe that do you think that a guy who's sort of forced the same kind of -- force you to buy insurance -- -- -- We'll get rid of Obama here's what you should now Romney care and obamacare are identical individual mandate employer mandate.
Telling doctors how to treat patients mandatory electronic medical records and a flight program.
And medical homes which is this decade euphemism for HI -- well old you brought.
He says that there is the main difference is that.
He doesn't he would not enforce.
Health insurance on people federally.
States are free to do what they want but -- -- -- differences the main one.
Biting the fact is what's so similar and -- it literally identical about these two plants -- that is that they both tell doctors how to treat their patients whose AM.
The premise behind both of these could cost you your life because both the architects of run Medicare and obamacare say.
They can cut the care patients get by 30% without doing harm.
But funny it's proves they're wrong the science shows that patients treated at those low spending hospitals with fewer tests fewer days in the hospital.
Caused patients their lives in fact of bringing spending -- -- headway before we get in the study generating what you're saying is critical because what you're saying I didn't realize that all a lot of the mandates for doctors.
-- in the Massachusetts or in Romney care the same things that are understood to -- it sounds like all he would be interest in doing would be tweaking.
What obamacare is spot.
My expertise it's information not prediction but if you read chapter 305 but the Massachusetts health law of 2006.
You will see the blueprint of obamacare.
It is identical.
Anybody ever forced him on this point any -- -- other other candidates running -- say.
Look governor when you look at Romney care -- -- many of the same aspects of obamacare and I've heard claims that only 8% of the people of Massachusetts are affected by this law -- -- a 100%.
Our effective so what about doctors are doctors now moving out of Massachusetts as a result.
I haven't seen the studies on that yet but I can tell you.
That the plan in Massachusetts is for a board.
Not a position to dictate how doctors treat patients specific individual cases even.
That's very disturbing that's just like section thirteen eleven up the Obama health -- that the famous death panel that no arguing about it -- a little -- little different format that's right but the fact is that both of them have this government knows best.
Attitude so what will happen after the election it's hard to say but.
Even with a Republican president we also have to make sure that the goal along to get along Republican people who were in the high positions in congress.
Don't -- and we want.
Immediate and total repeal not just tinkering around -- little.
Its two main things that Americans want I think with regard to health -- -- -- they want more choice not less choice and -- they want lower prices not higher rents -- worried they don't want government dictating what -- -- call right out of the fact is is that government involvement.
Increases the price of everything and government involvement of course decreases the choice.
And that we have to study show is that it can cost you your life and the study thirteen thousand California patients.
Would have -- -- -- Bennett a hospital.
The provided more tests and more care rather than -- thirteen thousand patients with hip fractures congestive heart failure and stroke but that tells you the -- K.
And and you have studies that -- go on one's -- -- the need is there any doubt you.
Is there any doubt at all that one thing that is pushing up the cost of premiums is affected obamacare forces.
Insurance companies to do more things without accommodating more cost of those.
Sources consumers and employers to provide more benefits an array of benefits not everybody wants there's no Tooth Fairy.
If you have to buy a plan with more things that you pay more and that's why people are being dropped from plans right yeah that's right and under Obama care.
Many people are gonna lose their employer provided health insurance up to half according to McKee McKinsey and company and -- man at the moment and up in Medicaid.
All right so you're not gonna predict what Romney's gonna do if he's elected president however based on what Ronnie carriers and based on the fact that he hasn't pushed away from anything -- -- -- he's been acts.
He's been asked whether there's anything in there that he disagrees with now and he says no.
Don't you think that he would sort of adopt basically obamacare is and I urged the public and the media to look more closely at -- -- before they make a decision.
Betsy -- good to see -- thank you very.
