LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Romney did not mince words, adding that health care reform "has really undermined the president's credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out, as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years, saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case ..."

Romney also said that "had the president been truthful and told the American people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket. there would have been such a hue and cry against it, (that) it would not have passed."

Saying it was a grave mistake to design a "one-size-fits-all" national health insurance mandate as Obama did, it must be noted that Romney had signed into law when he was governor of Massachusetts. Romney's health insurance overhaul had been compared to Obamacare. 

Romney said Massachusetts "teaches some important lessons some states are not going to want to follow," saying insurance is more expensive in Massachusetts than in any other state. "Texas and Minnesota and Montana" are not necessarily going to want to adopt such a costly plan.

Health care reform has been reeling under the strain. Enrollment for many has been plagued by software and data entry problems. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius offered an apology to a House committee in testimony last week, calling the enrollment software problems a "debacle" and "a miserably frustrating experience for way too many Americans."

The software issue has since been swept under the rug by reports of thousands of Americans being told by their insurance companies that their policies can no longer cover them. The companies state that they're not in compliance with the benefits package defined by the Affordable Care Act.

Obama's repeated promises in 2009 and 2010, that if a person liked the coverage he had, he could keep it -- have proven to be false.

In response, Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer discussed the president's promise that "if you like your plan, you can keep it," by explaining that "if your plan has been downgraded or canceled, you can't" keep it, on ABC's "This Week."
