Romney Conference Call: Obama Won By Giving Away Free Stuff and Amnesty

In a Wednesday conference call with his national finance committee, Gov. Mitt Romney said Obama was able to pull out the election through “free healthcare,” amnesty, and free contraception.

Romney said the promise of free healthcare was “huge” for someone making $25,000 to $30,000 a year: “Imagine being told you’re going to get free healthcare, particularly if you don’t have it, getting free health care worth what, $10,000 per family, in perpetuity?”

He told his finance committee that the free healthcare also helped Obama with Hispanic voters, and “the amnesty for children of illegals…was a huge plus for that voting group.” Romney said this amnesty, put in place by Obama just months before the election, was clearly a political maneuver aimed at accomplishing exactly what it accomplished on election day.

Regarding women, which Obama won by 12%, Romney did not speak to the demographic in its entirety. But he did point out that “free contraceptives were a big hit with young college-aged women.”
