Obama vs. Romney on Healthcare in New England Journal of Medicine

Less than a week after they co-starred on TV’s “60 Minutes,” President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney delivered another “showdown” with dueling commentaries on the Affordable Care Act, published online Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine.

The statements came in response to a request from NEJM editors asking the candidates to “describe their healthcare platforms and their visions for the future of American healthcare.”

Not surprisingly, the statements were long on sound bites and light on details.

The president made a case for “Obamacare” and he, too, used that term in his statement, saying he doesn’t mind the term because “I do care.”

Romney pledged to repeal Obamacare and replace it with “common-sense, patient-centered reforms suited to the challenges we face.”
