Romney: I will repeal health care law on first day in office
Republican Presidential candidate
Washington, D.C. —
The Supreme Court's decision to uphold President Barack Obama's sweeping federal health care law handed the Democratic incumbent crucial election-year vindication for his signature legislative accomplishment. Republican rival Mitt Romney said he would repeal the overhaul on his first day in office, if elected.
"If we want to get rid of Obamacare, we're going to have to replace President Obama," Romney said from a rooftop in Washington overlooking the U.S. Capitol.
Romney spoke shortly before Obama was to address the court's decision from the White House.
