Health-care law: Romney changes direction

by Surgical Tribune

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA: The presidential elections in the U.S. are at the door and a major topic of both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney election campaigns is health care. While Obama has always focused on this issue and often been criticized for his proposals by the Republicans, their presidential candidate Romney has now announced that he does not intend to get rid of health reform completely.

In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press", 65-year-old Romney said he would keep parts of Obama's health-care law. "Of course there are a number of things that I like in health-care reform that I'm going to put in place," he added. In the U.S., media suspicions have arisen that Romney is shifting his focus to independent voters after polls showed that Obama had gained support after the Democratic convention.

Up until now, Romney had made opposition to the health-care law central to his campaign. He announced that one of his first actions in office would be to seek to repeal it.
