Boston, MA – Romney for President today announced its Healthcare Professionals for Romney coalition.
“I am pleased to announce the formation of Healthcare Professionals for Romney,” said Mitt Romney. “So much is at stake in this election, including the future of American medical care. Barack Obama put in place a massive governmental takeover of this vital sector of our economy. I am committed to repealing Obamacare and replacing this costly bureaucratic misadventure with a sensible reform that returns decision-making to states and localities, and patients and doctors. I am proud that so many distinguished physicians and members of the healthcare community, including my son Ben, have joined with me in a common cause for a better America.”
“I am so proud to join Healthcare Professionals for Romney,” said Ben Romney. “I know that my dad has the knowhow and the experience to turn around our economy. And as a doctor, I am as excited about his ability to turn around the healthcare industry. Healthcare costs have been on the rise for a very long time, and no big government program is going to stop it. We need real reform that focuses on doctors and their patients and that opens up more competition and more freedom in the healthcare market. It will take leadership to bring about that change, and I know there’s no one better for the job than my dad, Mitt Romney.”
