Romney Booed At NAACP
Mitt Romney was booed when he said he’d eliminate ObamaCare.
…as Romney veered into his economic policy, which focuses on the reduction of government spending, the reception became tense. “We have to stop spending over a trillion dollars more than we take in every year,” he said to mild applause. “And so to do that i am going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program I can find — and that includes ObamaCare.” The room then erupted into prolonged booing.
Romney pushed through and continued to explain why he believes ObamaCare is a counterproductive job-killer, citing a Chamber of Commerce survey that found that three-quarters of its members believe the health-care law will make them less likely to hire people. Continuing with his “job creator” theme, he contrasted himself with President Barack Obama, telling the group that “If you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him,” which was met with another round of boos.
