Simply put, many aspects of the AMA (aka Obmamny care) are Republican supported ideas, in particular is the "Insurance market". The requirement that everyone must buy insurance is the darling of insurance companies, and they have huge power of politicians. And Romney created the basis for the AMA, among other things. Considering the stalled job environment, millions cannot afford the very expensive individual health insurance (when I shopped during a low income period, it was almost 2 weeks salary for me!). Dismantling the AMA means any chance they can get affordable, or assistance, H.C. goes out the window. TEA Party will very likely do all they can to remove it, but I suspect the general Republicans will work with Democrats to at most teak the system. Yes, Romney is just trying to get the vote, seen this before. If you think otherwise, explain why.
