Letter: If GOP repeals ACA, are Medicare, Social Security next?
First Published Apr 05 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Apr 05 2014 01:01 am

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke from the heart of the Republican Party when he declared on national TV that on his first day in office he would repeal Obamacare (the ACA).

The same Republican principles (minimal government, minimal taxes) that cause him and his party to hate Obamacare should logically cause them to hate both Social Security and Medicare.

If, as planned, the Republicans take back the Senate this year and the White House in two and a half years, after they repeal every part of Obamacare, will those principles cause them to repeal Social Security and Medicare?
