ObamaCare vs. RomneyCare

Report is critical of Romney’s health-care reform proposals

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s health-care proposal has come under scrutiny in a report released by Families USA.

The report, compiled by professors from Brandeis University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, found families would pay nearly twice as much for non-group health coverage in 2016, according to The Hill. The report also found 40 million more Americans would be uninsured under Romney’s plan compared to President Obama’s current federal health-reform law.

The researchers used national and state data to compare the Obama plan, Massachusetts’ health-reform law passed when Romney governed the state and proposals Romney has presented during his presidential campaign.

In a prepared statement, a Romney campaign spokesman called the report “absurd,” adding, “It assumes a fantasy world where ObamaCare has actually worked.”
