Mitt Romney just can’t catch a break!

Latest addition to another Mitt debacle was a  false claim that  came during the third presidential debate when Republican Presidential nominee claimed that budget deficit can be reduced if Obamacare is repealed, something which is completely false and absurd.

"Come on our website, you’ll look at how we get to a balanced budget within eight to 10 years. We do it by getting -- by reducing spending in a whole series of programs. By the way, number one -- get rid of is Obamacare," Romney said.

He seemed to have slipped a basic fact that Obamacare saves money for the government. Hence, repealing it will not reduce, but increase the deficit by $109 billion. If Romney has any proper alternative strategy of overcoming this deficit, he can definitely proceed with his aim of repealing Obamacare.

But first he needs to understand what is Obamacare and what does it do.
