Just ahead of the first presidential debate, the Commonwealth Fund has released new estimates that show GOP contender Mitt Romney’s plan to repeal the health reform law would leave about 72 million Americans without health insurance coverage by 2022.
That compares with the roughly 27 million people estimated to be uninsured that same year if the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is not overturned, according to the report, Health Care in the 2012 Presidential Election: How the Obama and Romney Plans Stack Up. The study from the Commonwealth Fund—a private foundation that supports the health reform law—examines how each candidate’s plan to address the country’s healthcare challenges will affect each state. It’s based on the results of a microsimulation analysis from Jonathan Gruber, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist and former technical consultant to the Obama administration who worked with both the administration and Congress on the Affordable Care Act.
