The former presidential candidate was referring to reports that millions of Americans had received cancellation notices from their insurers, which conservatives seized on to suggest Obama broke his oft-repeated campaign promise that people who were happy with their insurance plans could keep them under the Affordable Care Act.

Romney argued that state-based plans would be a better model to adopt than a "one-size-fits-all" health care system. To rebuild credibility, he said, the President must work with both Republicans and Democrats to rebuild the law.
