How Mitt Romney Plans to Deal with His Health-Care Issue


From his Free and Strong America PAC this morning:

Today, Mitt Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC announced a new donation program, dubbed “Prescription for Repeal,” to support conservative candidates who will repeal the worst aspects of Obamacare and restore commonsense principles to health care. The first wave of endorsements goes to three conservative leaders in key Ohio Congressional Districts.

The PAC will send each of the endorsed candidates a primary election contribution of $2,500. They are:

Representative Jean Schmidt:  Representative Jean Schmidt represents Ohio’s Second Congressional District and is running for reelection to her third full term.  She voted against ObamaCare on Sunday.  For more information on Representative Jean Schmidt and her campaign, visit

Representative Steve Chabot:  Representative Steve Chabot served as Congressman in Ohio’s First Congressional District for fourteen years and is running to reclaim his seat.  His opponent, Representative Steve Driehaus (D-OH), voted in favor of ObamaCare on Sunday.  For more information on Representative Steve Chabot and his campaign, visit

Steve Stivers:  Steve Stivers is a former State Senator and small businessman who is running for Ohio’s Fifteenth Congressional District.  His opponent, Representative Mary Jo Kilroy (D-OH), voted in favor of ObamaCare on Sunday.  For more information about Steve Stivers and his campaign, visit

“Health care reform shouldn’t mean higher taxes, cuts to our seniors on Medicare, insurance price controls or greater federal involvement in our lives.  America has unfortunately been taken down the wrong path by President Obama, which is why it’s critical we elect fiscally-responsible conservative leaders who will restore commonsense principles to healthcare,” said Romney.

The Ohio donations are the first of a series of “Prescription for Repeal” state rollouts over the coming weeks.
