Will Romney's "day one" promise on Obamacare come back to haunt him?

Mitt Romney has promised to take action on Obamacare on the first day of his administration if elected, and it's not the only "day one" promise that he's made.

But those promises are often easier to make than to keep. President Obama came close to fulfilling his "day one" promise to close Guantanamo Bay; he signed an executive order on day two to close it, but as we all know, the prison is still open three years later.

So does Mitt Romney's "day one" promise amount to more than campaign talk? Joining to discuss are McKay Coppins, a political reporter for BuzzFeed; Michelle Goldberg, senior contributing writer for Newsweek/The Daily Beast; and Alice Stewart, former spokeswoman for Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and Michelle Bachmann.

    If Romney wins the presidency it will be D 1 day which will be the destruction of the USA. But I believe that those who vote for something should live by it so lets go ahead and cut all benefits for Republicans first then see where the deficit is in 4 years.
    I have asked my two Congressmen to vote against any flood insurance bill. Why should the taxpayers cover the stupidity of people buying homes in flood zones while denying that climate change is happening (checked the record temps lately?) ? Let them buy it on the private market which they so strongly believe in.
