MANCHESTER —  Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani says Mitt Romney should admit that he made “a terrible mistake” with his Massachusetts health care plan that requires everyone to carry insurance, the Union Leader of New Hampshire reports.

By signing the  “Romneycare” health insurance bill into law in Massachusetts five years ago Romney created a model for "Obamacare," says Giuliani.

Giuliani said “Romneycare” was a model for “Obamacare,” and Romney “can't talk his way out of this. A mandate is a mandate is a mandate is a mandate is mandate. Let's get real.”

Giuliani criticized Romney but was full of praise for U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan and his budget plan.

Giuliani said Ryan  “has the most comprehensive program put out by anyone so far, but he's not running” for President.

“The candidates have been considerably more ambiguous than (Ryan) has been about what should be done” to address the budget deficit, Medicare and Medicaid, Giuliani said. “They're going to have to start doing that, and then we'll start to get a sense of which one seems to have the best ability to have an appeal to the people.”
