Politics: Romney reverses on Roy Blunt’s health care amendment

  • A few hours thought: Ever the maestro of hasty take-backs, reversals, and changes in direction, Mitt Romney today found himself on both sides of an amendment to the Affordable Care Act proposed by Missouri Senator Roy Blunt. Romney denies he meant to tell an interviewer “I’m not for the bill,” saying that he “misunderstood the question,” but given the perception of many GOP voters that he’s insufficiently conservative, the damage may be done. The Blunt amendment would allow employers to deny any health service that violates their religious, or moral convictions — a polarizing, red-hot issue that Romney might prefer not to deal with.
