Mitt Romney said there is now “greater urgency” in the presidential election after the decision by the Supreme Court to uphold President Obama’s health care plan.
“What happened yesterday calls for greater urgency, I believe, in the election,” Romney said, speaking at a private fundraiser at a Manhattan restaurant, his first remarks since his statement in Washington Thursday. “I think people recognize that if you want to replace ‘Obamacare,’ you’ve got to replace President Obama.
“And the urgency of doing that is something which is galvanizing people across the county,” Romney said.
There's been a split today between those who think Romney's own record on health care will prevent him from using ObamaCare as a campaign issue and those who think he'll exploit it, regardless.
Unfortunately, his comments at the fundraiser don't tip his hand. It was a private fundraiser, after all, and it's good business to raise money off ObamaCare.
So the jury is still out on whether he makes it a big issue on the trail.
