Presumptive GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said on Tuesday that most of President Barack Obama’s term will have been “wasted” if the Supreme Court overturns the Affordable Care Act this week.

“As you know, the Supreme Court is going to be dealing with whether or not Obamacare is constitutional. If it is not – if Obamacare is not deemed constitutional – then the first three-and-a-half years of this president’s term would have been wasted on something that has not helped the American people,” Romney told about 1,500 voters in a speech in Salem, Va., according to NationalJournal.com.

At Carter Machinery Co., one of the nation’s leading Caterpillar machine dealerships, Romney again pledged to “get rid of” the law on the first day of his presidency if it is upheld by the court. He has said every state would receive waivers from the law.

The Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling Thursday.

“I think all their work highlights the leadership failures of our current president,” the former Massachusetts governor said, referring to the high court justices.
