    The study found that Mitt Romney’s pledges to repeal the 2010 healthcare law, create a health insurance tax deduction and block-grant Medicaid would result in higher coverage costs and more uninsured Americans.

    The report was titled “ObamaCare versus RomneyCare versus RomneyCandidateCare,” and broke out detailed cost and coverage projections for each of the plans at the state and national levels.
