LaBolt: Does Romney Have Core Principles?

Obama for America Press Secretary Ben LaBolt criticized Mitt Romney's record on health care on Friday, telling MSNBC's Karen Finney that Romney's shift from supporting health care reform to rejecting the 2010 health care legislation calls the Republican presidential candidate's credibility into question.

“What is incredible is how far Governor Romney has come in the six years since he passed his health care law,” La Bolt said, refering to the law passed under Romney's tenure as governor of Massachusetts. While serving as governor, LaBolt said, Romney acknowledged the need to bring down health care costs, supported expanding health care coverage, and included an individual mandate in his state health care reform legislation.

“He said his plan should be a national model. Now, six years later, now that he’s running for a different office, apparently he doesn’t believe any of that,” La Bolt said.

 

LaBolt added that Romney has also shifted his positions on abortion and climate change. “The question is, who is Mitt Romney? Does he have any core principles?” La Bolt said.

The Obama campaign's remarks came in the wake of an all-out assault by Romney against the president's health-care reform on the two-year anniversary of the law.
