People that study business do not understand economics! Please explain if plan A does not happen for you in life what is your plan b? Experince of job/career loss, savings depletion, or divorce.... how do you recover? What type of interest do you get from a savings account in our banks today to provide a nest egg? Nest eggs died hugely with lost jobs, lost homes and failed marriages as a result.....

Mr. Romney, during the 10/02/12 debate, the President pointed out that your healthcare plan does not address preexisting conditions beyond what the law currently provides employees moving from one job to another, you insisted that you do in fact have a plan for people with preexisting conditions. However, the next day, your campaign clarified by stating your plan was in fact to uphold existing laws - the ones protecting employees as they move from job to job (with each of those jobs offering health care). Now that you've had time to think about it, has your plan changed to address ALL people - not just those with jobs that offer healthcare - with preexisting conditions or do you believe that it's not enough of an issue to address? You have also stated that people that can't be helped by your plan will have to turn to the states for help. However, you promise that as President you will decrease funding of Medicaid and that you will to allow insurance companies to offer insurance across state lines. How do you reconcile sending people to the state while decreasing funding to the states and reducing or eliminating their oversight of insurance companies?

A question for Mitt Romney: Earlier in your campaign you stated you would repeal Obamacare, then recently you stated that you would keep the popular positions. The popular components can not be funded without the mandate so how do you propose to do this without increasing the deficit? Answer this specifically. And answer SPECIFICALLY which loopholes would you go to congress to repeal to pay for your 20% across the board tax cuts.
