Romney Camp: Romneycare Job Loss Study ‘Deeply Flawed’

by Katrina Trinko

Earlier today, I reported on a study that argued Mitt Romney’s health-care program had lead to rising health care costs that had in turn lead to the loss of 18,000 jobs in Massachusetts. But the Romney campaign disputes the findings of the study.

“This study is deeply flawed,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul tells NRO in a statement. “It is based on the assumption that Massachusetts healthcare reform caused the rate of healthcare cost increases to accelerate. In fact, healthcare cost increases have slowed since the passage of reform. This error therefore invalidates the study.”
