Mitt Romney: Pres. Obama “Knowingly” Slowed Down Recovery to Pass Obamacare
On Wednesday, at a campaign appearance in San Antonio, Texas, Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) falsely claimed that President Barack Obama deliberately allowed the economic recovery to slow down in order to pass Obamacare.
Romney provided no actual proof of his claim, but did cite a right wing article by The New Republic senior editor Noam Schreiber’s The Escape Artists, which bills itself as a “history” of how the president’s economic team “fumbled” the recovery, but provides no proof either.
