Mitt Romney says “Obamacare” means up to 20 million Americans will lose insurance they like and want.
Mitt Romney reiterated his opposition to President Barack Obama’s health care law after the Supreme Court upheld it on June 28, 2012.
Following the Supreme Court’s decision upholding President Barack Obama’s health care law, Mitt Romney claimed in a speech that “Obamacare … means that for up to 20 million Americans, they will lose the insurance they currently have, the insurance that they like and they want to keep.”
When we checked with the Romney campaign, a spokesman confirmed that the source of Romney’s claim was a March 2012 study by the Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan number-crunching arm of Congress. In March 2012, we checked a similar statement by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.
