Former GOP presidential candidate and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney on Sunday said he wished he could go back in time when asked about Obamacare and the 2012 election.

“I don’t know. I wish I could go back and turn back the clock and take another try,” he said on “Fox News Sunday” when asked if he felt he would have won the 2012 election if President Obama had not told Americans that they would be all able to be able to keep their current plans under the health care law — a claim that in many cases turned out not to be the case.

Romney added that he is trying not to focus on the past, though.

“But history is in the past, and I’m not going to worry about what could have happened. What I am worried about, is that you have a lot of people who are going to find their premiums going through the roof,” he said. “They’re going to find that the doctor they’ve had, they can’t keep. They’re going to find the policies they were promised they could have, they’re not going to be able to keep. And the American people are going to be very, very upset about that.”
