Study: 72M Would Be Uninsured Under Romney

New research out Tuesday compares the health care plans of President Obama and his opponent Mitt Romney and reveals that, under a Romney adminstration, less Americans would have insurance than did before Obamacare ever passed. According to the Commonwealth Fund, the research foundation that conducted the comparison, Romney's health care plan would bring the population of uninsured to 72 million by 2022. In 2011, 47.9 million were uninsured. The study found that, if fully implemented, Obamacare would bring the number of uninsured down to 27.1 million by 2022.
