Checking the facts on Romneycare and Obamacare
The health care debate has landed on the virtual battleground of Facebook, with comparisons being made between President Barack Obama’s 2010 law and the bill that Republican Mitt Romney signed in Massachusetts.
A reader asked us to check this graphic that claims "Romneycare covers abortion, illegal immigrants and has a public option. Obamacare does not." We’ve also seen that statement repeated on Twitter.
Really? We checked the claims one by one and found the Facebook posting largely missed the mark. We rated it Mostly False.
