Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney (R) appeared on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” Friday night to “slow jam the news,” not shying away from talking about President Barack Obama’s signature health care law and highlighting increasing concern over domestic surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency.
“In just four days, President Obama will speak to the American people about some of the most important issues facing our nation today,” Romney said. “From unemployment and debt, to immigration reform and education, as well as one of our most pressing concerns, the recent revelations that U.S. citizens have been exposed to widespread NSA wiretapping.”

“Awe, yeah,” Fallon added. “President Obama looked the American people up and down and said, ‘I’d tap that.’ But then NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden whipped out his whistle and started blowing.”
The former presidential candidate then noted some of the problems associated with the rollout of Obamacare, with Fallon contending Romney’s own health plan in Massachusetts never suffered from any “performance problems in the hardware department.”
