House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said on Friday that Mitt Romney, if elected, would get America's health care back on track.
“The choice is very clear… it’s all about this election,” Cantor said on CBS’ This Morning. “If Mitt Romney gets elected, which as you know I support, Mitt Romney will be the one that will, frankly, get the health care that most people want back on track.”
During appearances on This Morning and MSNBC's Morning Joe, Cantor specified that Romney and House Republicans want to see a very different health care system.
“The fact is, we need more choice,” Cantor said on This Morning. “We need people to be able to choose the kind of benefits that they want, and frankly, to base it on the needs of their family, not some dreamed up world here in Washington.”
Cantor also hit President Obama on the Supreme Court’s Thursday ruling that justified the new law under tax provisions, previewing an argument that will likely be seen on the campaign trail.
“There were promises made throughout the process by this president, Nancy Pelosi, and others saying 'oh no, we’re not going to tax people.' Well, the court said this is a tax,” Cantor said.
House Republicans will vote to repeal the health care law on Wednesday, July 11, though that effort will likely get no traction in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
