Romney: Obama's 'Broken Promise' Puts Second Term in Jeopardy

Friday, 15 Nov 2013 12:24 PM

By Dan Weil

Mitt Romney Friday joined the voices predicting that the disastrous rollout of Obamacare risks making President Barack Obama irrelevant for the final three-plus years of his presidency.

What's particularly egregious is Obama's "broken promise" that Americans could keep their current insurance policies under the Affordable Care Act, Romney says.

Story continues below video.



"That promise was not accurate. It was not honest," the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 GOP presidential candidate said on "CBS This Morning." "The whole foundation of his second term is in jeopardy as a result of that."

Romney isn't too impressed with the fix Obama announced Thursday: allowing people to keep their policies for another year.

"It’s dishonest. What starts twisted, stays twisted," Romney said. "And it’s not going to be fixed until we fundamentally reshape Obamacare, . . . either repeal it or reshape it and reform it."
