"Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform," Romney told NBC's David Gregory. "Of course, there are a number of things that I like in health care reform that I'm going to put in place.  One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage.  Two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their-- their family up to whatever age they might like.  

"I also want individuals to be able to buy insurance, health insurance, on their own as opposed to only being able to get it on a tax-advantage basis through their company," Romney said.

Romney told Gregory he's going to "replace Obamacare" with his own plan:

"And, you know, even in Massachusetts where I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people."
