TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At an Election Day candidate forum in Tampa, Florida sponsored by the American Seniors Association (ASA), former Governor Mitt Romney told a crowd of the organization's conservative seniors that when it comes to fixing America's health care system, Hillarycare is not the answer.
"I am convinced we need to grab the reins on this healthcare issue and get our citizens insured but do it in a conservative and Republican way, not socialized medicine or Hillarycare," Romney told the seniors.
According to the 2000 Census, fully 17.3 percent of the population of Florida is over the age of 65, as compared to the national average of 12 percent. Voters over 65 constituted 44 percent of the primary turnout in the 2000 election, and they are expected to be decisive today.
The American Seniors Association, often called a conservative alternative to the AARP, will provide its members with other candidate forums as the primary season continues.
