Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has proposed a new way to block the Democratic health care law.
"If I were president, on day one I would issue an executive order paving the way for Obamacare waivers to all 50 states," he wrote in a statement that appeared on the National Review Online.
"The executive order would direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health-care solutions that work best for them," he added.
"Since an outright repeal would take time, an executive order is the first step in returning power to the states," Romney continued.
Romney said a national system that raises taxes is not the best solution for America.
He also said his ultimate goal is to repeal the Obama program "and replace it with free-market reforms that promote competition and lower health-care costs."
