Did Romney cut a pivotal line from his paperback?

Seems Rick Perry and Mitt Romney have each sold a few more books lately — to each other's campaigns.

Romney used Perry's comments about Social Security in Fed Up!, the Texas governor's screed against federal expansionism, to portray Perry as a foe of the popular retirement program. Then, at the Sept. 22, 2011, Fox News/Google debate in Orlando, Perry struck back by suggesting that Romney had altered the paperback edition of his book No Apology to downplay his support of the Massachusetts health care plan.

PolitiFact checked Perry's claim and found he was exaggerating.
