Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama's "fundamental dishonesty" over his signature health care program has "put in peril the whole foundation of his second term."
The former Massachusetts governor, appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," repeatedly said the president "wasn't telling the truth" when he made his "if you like your health care, you can keep it" pledge and added it is "rotting" away his second term.
Romney also rejected comparisons made by Obama between the health care program he implemented in Massachusetts as governor and the Affordable Care Act, saying the issue should have been dealt with at the state level.
"The right way to deal with health care reform is not to have a 'one size fits all' plan that is imposed on all the states," Romney told host David Gregory. "States should be able to craft their own plans to get all their citizens insured."
