Santorum: Romney ‘Lying to the American People'

Rick Santorum accused Mitt Romney on Monday of “lying to the American people” when it comes to the former Massachusetts governor’s position on his signature health care law.

Speaking at a campaign stop in Ohio, the former Pennsylvania senator leveled a stinging attack on Romney, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

 

“If the policy is bad, the policy is bad," Santorum said. "And a bad policy is one thing. But lying to the American people is something else."

Santorum was referencing, among other things, a recently back-in-the-spotlight opinion piece Romney wrote for USA Today in 2009, which suggested that President Obama could use Romney’s Massachusetts’ initiative as a blueprint for a national plan, including an individual mandate to get people to buy insurance. Romney has said on the campaign trail that he always opposed a federal mandate to buy health insurance.

The Romney campaign has adamantly denied Santorum's charges.
