Obama Praises Mitt Romney in Boston: ‘He Did the Right Thing’ On Health Care Reform (Mediaite)

Speaking before a supportive audience in Boston on Wednesday, President Barack Obama praised his former Republican presidential opponent, Mitt Romney, for signing a law that created a universal health care system in Massachusetts. Obama said that this law, which served as the model for the Affordable Care Act, is successful and Romney did “the right thing” by signing it.

“All the parade of horrible, the worst predictions about health care in Massachusetts, never came true,” Obama said. “They’re the same arguments that you’re hearing now.”
