    I'm curious, if Romney wins the election, can he do away with Obamacare by executive order, or will a bill eliminating it have to pass through Congress?

    Well, he could do what Obama did with immigration laws and just tell the federal government not to enforce Obamacare.

    Since the Supreme Court ruled it was a tax congress will have to pass a repeal of said tax for Romney to sign.

    Anybody who thinks Obama care will be repealed, well I've got some swamp land that I'll sell you cheap.

    As it is a revenue measure, Romney can simply point out that arose in the Senate, not the House, and is therefore invalid.
    If the SC disagrees, it can enforce Obamacare on it's own.

    He can always follow the lead of Andrew Jackson. When told by little man marshall that he couldn't follow through with his planned relocation of the indians, his response was that marshall had made his decision. And marshall would have to enforce it. Since the sc has no power to do anything except pontificate, Jackson went right ahead and did exactly as he pleased. And marshall... he just sat on the court.

    Looks like Pelosi and Reid got around that issue:

    Romney already stated that he likes the parts that make insurance not really insurance. Forcing people to accept a person with preexisting conditions into their shared risk pool violates freedom of association. Telling insurance companies what they are required to cover at a minimum is restraint of trade. Disallowing lifetime caps will do nothing to control costs, in fact it will drive costs up.
