The New York Times stated that the challenges facing Romney are those of his health care system, which is being compared to with Obamacare, and his moderate stances on gay rights and abortion.
The difference in his health care system and Obamacare, is Romney isn’t going to use the federal government to take care of everyone’s health care.
“Our next president must repeal Obamacare and replace it with market-based reforms that empower states and individuals and reduce health care costs. States and private markets, not the federal government, hold the key to improving our health care system.”
Romney’s moderate stance on gay rights is one of good judgment. He gives his beliefs freely on the traditional definition of marriage, but he opposes the intolerance and judgment of gays and lesbians. We all must remember that this is a nation where every man, women and child is created equal.
“Like me, the great majority of Americans wish both to preserve the traditional definition of marriage and to oppose bias and intolerance directed towards gays and lesbians.”
After not signing the anti-abortion pledge, allowing Republican presidential candidates to promise "to support only judicial nominees who are pro-life, to select pro-life cabinet members, to stop taxpayer funding of abortions, and to support a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy," inspired many people to doubt Romney’s leadership abilities. Romney gives good reasoning for not signing the pledge, explaining that if he did it would cripple hospitals dependent on federal payment.
"I am pro-life and believe that abortion should be limited to only instances of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother."
