If I were Mitt Romney, I would put the Obamacare situation to rest by doing two things. First, I would emphatically say I would repeal the entire law. Second, I would go on record saying Obamacare was thoughtless and does nothing to reform health care, President Obama’s stated purpose.

It is true that health care in this country needs significant changes, especially in affordability and accessibility. But what we have with Obamacare is chaos. I would tell voters the entire situation would be addressed in my administration, with the prime purpose of keeping the doctor and the patient as close together as possible. It must be remembered that insurance wedged its way between the doctor and the patient. We cannot allow government to further separate the two.

Furthermore, this will not take anywhere near 2,700 pages, and it will not be taxable. What was done in Massachusetts addressed a cost situation, not a care situation.

I would go on to say jobs and the economy are my specialty and that they would have my full attention.

I would repeat this message frequently, both personally and with clever TV ads.
