The Romney campaign is sending a new mailer to voters in the key battleground state of Virginia promising to begin the effort to repeal Obamacare from day one, should Americans elect him over pro-abortion President Barack Obama in November.

The mailing Romney would “take immediate steps to repeal and replace Obamacare” on the first day of his presidency. It includes the tag line, “To Repeal Obamacare, Replace President Obama.”

“New Obamacare taxes, more Virginia jobs lost,” the piece, which CNN obtained, reads. “To repeal Obamacare, America must replace President Obama.”

Romney has stressed repealing Obamacare — which pro-life groups strongly oppose because it funds abortions, prompts rationing concerns, and has the HHS mandate forcing religious groups to pay for abortion-causing drugs — throughout the campaign. In May, the Romney presidential campaign released its first television commercial with the Republican candidate outlining what he would do on his first day in office, if elected president.

“Mitt Romney has outlined a bold agenda to spur economic growth and create jobs. On his first day in office, he will approve the Keystone pipeline, introduce pro-growth tax reforms, and repeal Obamacare,” his campaign said.
