DENVER (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney is vowing to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, saying it adds costs to the health system and has led to Medicare cuts.
Romney says in the first presidential debate that Obama spent his energy pushing through a massive health care law rather than trying to fix the struggling economy.
Romney says it's expensive and expensive things hurt families.
Obama says his administration worked on the health care law at the same time he was working to create jobs. He says the law has helped people with pre-existing conditions and those who have children under age 26.
The president counters that he based the law on Romney's own plan when he was governor.
Obama says, quote, "We've seen this model work really well — in Massachusetts."
