FACT CHECK: Santorum Half Right on Obamacare and Romneycare

Rick Santorum aggressively went after Mitt Romney on Thursday night for the health care plan he enacted in Massachusetts that Santorum said was too similar to “Obamacare,” as it is derisively known among conservatives, for Romney to credibly go toe-to-toe against the president in the fall.
